Reports out of France indicate that Olivier Giroud wants a sit down with Arsene Wenger over his Arsenal future.
Giroud started the season in strong enough form to justify his place as a starting forward for a big club. There have always been doubts about his ability to be a title winning starter for Arsenal but he was at least in the right ballpark in the early going. Then the second half of the season happened and he went goalless for a long spell and was replaced by Danny Welbeck as the preferred starter for a stretch of matches. Any reasonable observer would suggest that Giroud has reason to be worried about his prospects for playing time. If Arsenal are to challenge for the title then they need a forward who won't go months at a time without a goal. May 19 - 1:33 PM
