Arsenal could see ace depart with Turkish giants eyeing up move following loss of key forward to Everton

Posted by

Arsenal and France forward Olivier Giroud is reportedly being eyed up by Turkish giants Besiktas following the departure of Cenk Tosun to Everton.

This is according to the Mirror, who are re-reporting BeinSportsTR, who state that Besiktas are keen on swooping for Giroud following Tosun’s Everton transfer, with the Turkish side looking to replace the striker following his move.

Since moving to the north London club from French side Montpellier in the summer of 2012, Giroud has seen himself become a fan favourite at the Emirates.

In 252 games for the Gunners, the French international has managed to bag himself a total of 105 goals and 41 assists, a decent record considering the player has seen himself often being used a super-sub for a fair part of his Arsenal career.

So far this season, Giroud has seen his first team chances limited following the arrival of fellow Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette, with Giroud only being able to 359 minutes in the 15 league appearances he’s made.

Should Giroud end up leaving the north London club in the near future, it’ll be interesting to see how the forward performs without the services of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez behind him.
