West Ham United have approached Chelsea over a potential move for Olivier Giroud, according to The Daily Mail.
There were fears that Marko Arnautovic had suffered a potentially long-term injury during Tuesday’s 3-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League.
However, scans have revealed that the Austrian only suffered bruising to his foot and should therefore not be on the sidelines for too long.
The Hammers have been strongly linked with Celta Vigo’s Maxi Gomez, but it now seems likely that any move might have to wait until the summer.
The 87-cap Frenchman has only netted once in the Premier League this season, but managed over 100 goals during his time at Arsenal.
The West Ham fans have been offering their views on the speculation and it would be fair to say that a number have differing opinions.
I’d take him

He would really help Anderson like he has helped Hazard.

Is he not just an Andy Carroll with spoilers and tinted windows ?

Not our type of player
