Giroud targets landmark

Giroud targets landmark

13 Sep, 17:00

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has set his eyes on hitting the 100-goal for the Gunners claiming that it can be the latest chapter in an Arsenal love story. 

Reaching century is the main reason why the Frenchman decided to stay at Emirates despite interests from a number of Premier League clubs in the summer.  A Premier League winner against Leicester on the opening day took Giroud to 99 Arsenal goals, but he has since been restricted to 67 minutes from the bench. That is likely to change when Cologne visit for Thursday's Europa League opener as Arsene Wenger plans changes ahead of Sunday's trip to Chelsea.

The 30 year old was aware his early-season involvement could be limited following the arrival of Alexandre Lacazette, but he opted to stay and fight for first team football.
