Arsenal prepare for big bid from French giants as they look to sign striker
Arsenal are bracing themselves for interest in one of their strikers this summer.
The Emirates side are expecting a bid for Olivier Giroud as Marseille look to take the Frenchman back to his native homeland.
Reports suggest that the French giants are willing to go up to £20m and will go in for the player in the summer in an attempt to get a deal over the line.

Giroud, who has very much a limited role in the squad, has seemingly become frustrated with the lack of chances he has been given at Arsenal.
Now, Marseille could well give him the first team football that he desires and with a very ambitious club in France.
Having acquired Dimitri Payet from West Ham to complete a reunion with the player, the club will now look to bring Giroud back to Ligue 1.
Giroud used to play for Montpellier in which he made his name before a move to London and Arsenal.
A part-time player for both club and country, Olivier could well benefit hugely from a move back to the French Ligue 1, allowing playing time to really showcase what he can do.
