Olivier Giroud wants to link up with Karim Benzema

The Arsenal striker is not worried about his future at the club and states that he would welcome the addition of the Real Madrid striker to the squad

The Gunners striker has been the team’s most dependable forward in the last two seasons and has been carrying the goalscoring burden on his shoulders for a really long time. And now, it appears that he will be given an opportunity to relax a little bit if Arsene Wenger manages to get his hands on fellow countryman, Karim Benzema.

The Real Madrid man has been hotly linked with a move to the Emirates and contrary to what others may think, Giroud feels that Benzema’s arrival would be a great thing for him and for the club.

‘If there is another striker it will be nice for all the team because competition is good for everyone,’ Giroud told reporters.

‘I am going to focus on my preparation. We are doing well together with a good cohesion. The most important thing for me is that the team is always improving. I give my best every game.’
