Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to call time on Olivier Giroud’s hit and miss Gunners career as he seeks to use the French forward as bait in pursuit of long term target Edinson Cavani. The PSG star is said to be unsettled at the Parc des Princes and has been strongly linked with a summer exit and is known to be a player Wenger has targeted.
There had been speculation that any move to sell the 27 year old Uruguayan had been shelved due a rib injury suffered by Zlatan Ibrahimovic over the weekend however a move that would see Giroud join the Ligue 1 side could be one Laurent Blanc considers. Giroud for his part was said to be leaning towards a move back to his native France during a dry spell he suffered last term and a move to the French capital could tempt the 27 year old. Cavani has been frustrated at playing second fiddle to Ibrahimovic and as such Blanc may feel Giroud could suit a supporting role at the club.
