Former Manchester United forward Louis Saha says Arsenal should consider resigning Olivier Giroud from Chelsea in January.
Arsene Wenger signed Giroud to Arsenal in 2012 and the Frenchman went on to score more than 100 goals for the club and help the gunners win three FA Cups.
Giroud left the Emirates in January 2018 to sign for London rivals Chelsea, where he has already scored a further 35 goals and won the Europa League.
The 34-year-old is currently enjoying a good run for the blues – scoring six goals in his last five games – but is still being linked with an exit in January due to the competition at Stamford Bridge.
Asked whether Arsenal should signing Giroud, Saha told Genting Bet: ‘Olivier Giroud could be a good option for Arsenal if they were to resign him. He is a top striker.
‘He might not always give you the style that you want but he is always questioned and stands up to answer them. Any side in England would love to have a Giroud on top form in their team.’
Saha added: ‘Arteta has shown a lot of quality since he came into management at Arsenal.
‘He has rightly been praised by pundits for his quality and style of play but that all gets forgotten the second they lose some matches. Mikel is still a young manager, he will make mistakes but he has adapted to certain situations well already.
‘You have to realise that Arteta has been dropped into a big club very soon – I was surprised – but he has done better than I expected in the way that he has dealt with it all.
‘He has handled the pressure extremely well. You also have to remember that the club itself isn’t so great at the moment – it’s not just Arteta not doing a good job. ‘He’s come into a club that hasn’t done well with transfers in recent years so he has work to do.’
