Chelsea complete signing of Olivier Giroud from Arsenal

Chelsea complete signing of Olivier Giroud from Arsenal”

Following Alexis Sanchez's switch to Premier League rivals Manchester United earlier in the January transfer window, Arsenal moved to secure the signing of Gabon worldwide Aubameyang - who will reunite with former Dortmund teammate Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hinted Olivier Giroud had played his last game for the club after their 3-1 defeat to Swansea and said a move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be "decided" tomorrow morning.

"Chelsea is one of the biggest teams in the Premier League", Giroud said in a news release from Chelsea.

Arsenal, however, were awaiting their club record signing from the German side before relinquishing the France global.

Chelsea FC has completed the signing of forward Olivier Giroud, according to the team. Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang linked up to great effect when they played together at Dortmund in the 2015-16 season, scoring 62 goals between them in all competitions. He also had stops with Tours and Montpellier before joining Arsenal. "He has scored goals regularly throughout his career and is well accustomed to English football and the Premier League".

"I'm a fast player and I score goals too, like Henry a little bit".

The fee for Aubameyang was identical to that paid by Manchester City for France under-21 worldwide Aymeric Laporte on Tuesday.

Giroud, meanwhile, is set to move across London to Stamford Bridge in a reported £18million deal - and Wenger paid tribute to the 31-year-old who has scored 105 goals for Arsenal.

Moura, who has made 35 appearances for Brazil, nearly moved to the Premier League in 2012, but PSG beat Manchester United to his signature.

Sam Clucas equalised for Swansea and then scored his second four minutes from time, but the game turned on a terrible error by Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech, which allowed Swansea's Jordan Ayew to put his side 2-1 ahead.
