Well is this case a few things can happen. First is the scenario that Giroud does indeed move to Chelsea this season given that Arsenal are inclined to losing him, I doubt they will hanker much over the prices as they have recently shown how cheaply then can sell their players. Secondly Giroud can be off to Dortmund on loan as a direct replacement and Michy stays where he is. This for me seems likely but if Arsenal are really frustrated then Giroud might be willing to move on given that there is a World cup in the horizon and he has only started just once so far this season. This for me would be very favorable as I am being torn by the prospect of seeing Olivier in an Chelsea shirt. Olivier is a very loyal and extraordinary player who has been brilliant for us over the years and seeing him go off is painful as it is but its all the more excruciatingly painful if that has to be to Stamford Bridge. Then there is the third scenario which is highly unlikely and improbable which is that Giroud does stay at Arsenal and becomes our wonderfully amazing super-sub and Dortmund in that case go after Anthony Modeste of China who had previously played under the Dortmund coach as FC Koln. Lets hope it all goes well and we get some clarity soon on what is happening and what is not. Till then COYG !!!!
LATEST: Aubameyang medical pencilled for Wed AM. Earlier today all set for Batshuayi loan to Dortmund, Giroud to Chelsea for £20m. But #CFC via Marina Granovskaia now trying to drive price down so #AFC minded to end talks & send Giroud to #BVB – though unclear if he’d agree to it pic.twitter.com/R9jAnVdk0f— David Ornstein (@bbcsport_david) January 30, 2018
