The French international has been the Gunners’ most dangerous striker this term and leads their scoring charts with 19 goals, but his off-field antics have led to criticism.
In February Giroud took to Twitter to apologise for cheating on his wife after pictures of him in a hotel room with model Celia Kay, which were reportedly taken on the eve of a matchday, emerged.
Since then the 27-year-old has dipped in and out of the first-team, and was even dropped for Saturday’s crunch FA Cup semi-final against Wigan in favour of rookie front-man Yaya Sanogo.
Wenger is said to be furious with Giroud’s lack of professionalism, and is prepared to accept offers of around £17m for the player he signed just two years ago.
Interest from France is said to be high, with Giroud possessing a good reputation in Ligue 1 after firing Montpellier to the title before joining Arsenal.
Selling his current first choice striker would also clear the way for Wenger to move for a top class goalscorer – which was a priority last summer.
