Transfer Balls: Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud Passes To Edinson Cavani On The Way Out

by | 22nd, August 2014

TRANSFER Balls: Are Arsenal looking to get shot of Olivier Giroud, their main striker?

The Metro screams:

Arsenal to offer PSG £32million plus Olivier Giroud for Edinson Cavani transfer

The Metro’s annoucnemnt is based on a single report by a website called Sport.fr. It reports:

Giroud, the perfect signing for Paris

The story whitters on until it cites its source for the story as Caughtoffside.com. That’s the reliable news sources that stated Arsenal has signed Sami Khedira in July.

So. To the Giroud scoop.

Number of sources cites: None

Number of names quotes: None

And, then, Giroud’s manager Arsene Wenger told one and all:

“Maybe we have over-played him at some stage. There is perhaps room for an attacking player who can play in a different position to Giroud. Someone who can play with him as well.”

Such are the facts…
