100-goal Arsenal star admits summer contact with Everton

Alex Iwobi Alexis Sanchez Mesut Ozil exit setback

The story claims that Arsenal have been tracking Lookman for some time, and were keen on signing him before he left Charlton to sign for Everton.

Lyon, Marseille and West Ham were among the teams linked with Giroud earlier this year, but he named another of the sides credited with an interest - Everton - as a club he came so close to joining.

Ronald Koeman identified the Arsenal striker as the Blues' preferred replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who had joined Manchester United.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman pushed hard to land the 31-year-old and with a World Cup on the horizon, he made a decision to stay with the Gunners and fight for his place.

Lacazette, who arrived at the Emirates from Lyon, has hit the ground running at his new club, already scoring four Premier League goals in seven appearances and pushing Giroud onto the bench.

Giroud claims he chose to prolong his Arsenal career because of his affiliation with the club.

"I had the opportunity to leave", Giroud told French broadcaster Canal Football Club ahead of France's final World Cup qualifier with Belarus. "But I think I made the best choice".

They now sit six points behind leaders Manchester City after seven games of the new campaign as they prepare for their trip to Watford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

"I have a lot of respect for Marseille, I was a fan for years", he added.

Victory over Belarus will confirm passage to the Russia World Cup for Giroud and his worldwide team-mates, seeing them top the pile as Group A victors. "But a return to France is possible one day".
