Arsenal fans ponder shock Giroud return as Welbeck looks set to be sold

Moving between London rivals is always a risky move, but when Olivier Giroud joined Chelsea from Arsenal, the majority of fans continued to show love for the striker.

At the time of the Frenchman’s switch in January, he was low down the pecking order under former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

With Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the squad, Giroud’s route into the first XI was made that much harder.

Since moving to Chelsea, the hitman has scored five goals in 17 appearances in all competitions, but he started just nine of those matches.

Giroud struggled to find his shooting boots at the World Cup as he failed to hit the back of the net despite France going all the way and winning the tournament in Russia.

The striker may not be as prolific at the moment, but he does have 76 Premier League goals to his name, and some Arsenal fans think that the club should try to re-sign him just six months after selling the forward.

This discussion was sparked on Reddit following a report in The Telegraph, which claims that new manager Unai Emery could offload Danny Welbeck before the summer window shuts.

If this was to happen, some Arsenal fans would love Giroud to return, while others are not so sure.
