Premier League club will not repeat £40m offer for Arsenal attacking star

October 3, 2017

Everton will reportedly not renew their interest in Olivier Giroud in the January transfer window.

The France international scored his 100th goal for Arsenal in the away win against BATE Borisov in the Europa League. Despite this historical achievement he has still struggled to gain a permanent spot in the starting line-up.

With Alexandre Lacazette’s arrival in the summer, it became even more complicated for the Frenchman, but it appears as though a potential exit to Merseyside can be ruled out as he’s no longer on their radar.

According to The Daily Star, even though the 30-year-old has already previously insisted that he intends on staying with Arsenal, the rumours of joining Everton are now going to stop as the Toffees aren’t interested in him.

The Toffees were expected to make a fresh £40m bid for Giroud in January, but that is simply not the case. The Daily star claim that Everton will not even chase him let alone make a big-money bid for his services.

It is quite certain that Ronald Koeman needs to improve the attack in January. His team only scored four times in seven appearances. It’s no surprise as to what is causing their problems, as they are in the 16th place in the Premier League table and are under pressure to turn things around after such big expectations before the season got underway.

As for Olivier Giroud, he’ll hope that he can prove to Wenger that he should start more consistently, as he’ll be desperate to secure his place in the France squad for the World Cup in Russia next summer too.
