Arsenal star reveals he was close to summer Everton move

Arsenal star reveals he was close to summer Everton move”

While the Toffees were in the hunt, West Ham were also keen, and Marseille wanted to take him back to Ligue 1.

Giroud has lost his place in Arsenal's starting lineup due to Arsene Wenger favouring Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette to lead the line, being a regular substitute for the Gunners, though has since stated that he is happy to stay at the Emirates and fight for his place in the starting XI.

The 19-year-old spent one full season at the League One outfit before Everton beat a host of Premier League rivals to secure his signature last January.

Koeman failed in his attempted to lure Giroud from Arsenal and have now turned his attention elsewhere. "But I think I made the best choice".

"I am content to have remained". Having had two weeks to take stock and assess what has been going wrong, they will be looking to pick up a much needed win when they head to Brighton on Sunday, when the Premier League returns from the global break.

Dost, who has been capped by Holland 16 times, has scored 36 goals in 41 games in all competitions for the Portuguese club, including five goals in 12 games this season.

Everton and Arsenal face each other in the Premier League on October 22.

With Giroud hoping to make France's squad for the 2018 World Cup, he will have to make a bigger impact as the campaign progresses.

Ronald Koeman is determined to sign a forward when the transfer window opens in January and he has held a long-term interest in his fellow Dutchman Dost.
