Olivier Giroud: In favour of the signing of Luis Suarez

Suarez is reportedly a target for the Gunners after expressing a desire to leave Liverpool this summer.

Giroud is convinced the two men can work together and sees no reason why Arsene Wenger's side cannot launch a title bid this season.

"Luis is someone with whom I could form a good understanding on the pitch," said Giroud, quoted in The Sun.

"So I am in favour of him coming to Arsenal and I am not afraid of the competition for places his arrival would bring about.

"Arsenal's aim for the new season will be to qualify for the Champions League.

"And, given the fact that our rivals have changed their coaching staffs, I don't see why we can't challenge for the title."

The France international, who signed Montpellier last summer, is also hoping for an improved campaign on a personal level.

"I aim to do better than last season, by scoring more than 17 goals and providing more than 10 assists."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
