Antonio Conte

Olivier Giroud’s agent has arrived in London to complete his client’s move to Chelsea, according to the Daily Mail.

The tabloid claim that Arsenal have agreed to sell the France international to the Premier League champions for a fee in the region of £18M.

It is thought that Giroud’s arrival at Stamford Bridge will pave the way for Michy Batshuayi to join Borussia Dortmund on loan, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to sign for Arsenal.

Oliver Giroud has scored eight goals for Arsenal this season

Giroud’s arrival will signal the end of Antonio Conte’s month-long pursuit of a new centre-forward. Alvaro Morata has been struggling over the past month, so Giroud’s arrival will hopefully help lift the goal-scoring burden off of his shoulders.

Giroud featured for Arsenal during their 3-1 defeat to Swansea City last night, but is still expected to complete his move to Chelsea on deadline day. Keep an eye out on for all the latest transfer developments as they come.
