Borussia Dortmund were also keen on the striker being included in a potential deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but the Gunners rejected the move.

If Chelsea are looking for a short-term, "plan b", tall striker, and it's pretty obvious that they are, then it's hard to think of a better choice than Giroud.

Arsenal chiefs have been in negotiations with Borussia Dortmund all week after chief executive Ivan Gazidis, lawyer Huss Fahmy and head scout Sven Mislintat flew-out to Germany last weekend to thrash out a deal.

"We have a clear position". Despite Arsene Wenger admitted that the player will be allowed to leave, but only if they can secure a replacement for the Frenchman.

Aubameyang was in action for full 90 minutes in Saturday's Bundesliga game but could not add to his 13 league goals this campaign as Peter Stoger's men were held to a 2-2 draw by Freiburg.


While the latter has turned their attention elsewhere, Arsenal could still attempt to sign the former Manchester United star, who has just 18 months left on his contract at the Hawthorns. "We have up to now refused them all".

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has stated that Olivier Giroud would only join Chelsea or any other club if Arsenal bring in another striker this January. "He needs game time".

Evans is open to a move, but Arsenal may face a late battle, with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City keen to land the Northern Ireland worldwide depending on his fitness status.

Southampton are ready to make a loan move for the young Tottenham full-back before the January transfer deadline is up, The Sun reports.
