West Ham Want Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud, Man City’s Iheanacho

A transfer news rumour says West Ham FC has launched a bid to sign Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud. According to Sky Sport, the choice of Giroud is part of the Hammers ambition to fortify their attacking options this summer.

Giroud joined Arsenal from Montpellier in 2012 and has since scored 98 goals in 226 appearances in all competitions.

He has helped the club win the FA Cup on three occasions (2014, 2015 and 2017) and was part of the France squad that reached the final of EURO 2016.

West Ham are also said to be eyeing Nigerian international, Kelechi Iheanacho, who currently plays for Manchester City. Other interests are Michy Batshuayi (Chelsea), Adama Traore (Middlesbrough) and Henry Onyekuru (KAS Eupen).

Giroud scored 16 goals last season.

Despite this, the 30-year-old pledged his future to Arsenal in January, signing a new two-and-a-half-year contract with the Gunners.

On his part, Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger is aiming to smarten up his own attacking options, which may see him sign Kylian Mbappe (Monaco) and Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon).
