Giroud Signs New 80,000-a-week Contract At Arsenal

French striker Olivier Giroud has signed a new 80,000-a-week contract at Arsenal that will keep him at the Emirates until 2018. The deal is a two-year extension on Giroud’s current contract and will be announced soon by the club. Giroud is currently sidelined as he recovers from surgery after suffering a broken left tibia in the 2-2 draw at Everton in August. The 28-year-old is into his third season with Arsenal after joining from Montpellier in a deal worth around 10million. Arsene Wenger was quick to boost his attacking options in the summer, bringing in Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona for 30m and Danny Welbeck from Manchester United in a 16m deal. Arsenal face Galatasaray in the Champions League at the Emirates Stadium this week looking to bounce back from their defeat by Borussia Dortmund on Match Day one.
