Liverpool should sign Giroud, suggests Saunders

Liverpool should sign Olivier Giroud from Arsenal, according to Dean Saunders.

Giroud faces an uncertain future at the Emirates Stadium after the arrival of Alexandre Lacazette, with Everton thought to be keen on signing the Frenchman.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have already signed Mohamed Salah this summer, and have a forward line most clubs would envy.

For Saunders to suggest they should sign Giroud is not his most ridiculous claim yet, but that is hardly saying anything.

“I think Giroud could play for Liverpool,” he told talkSPORT.

“Liverpool’s current front three float around, they just play anywhere, but against the lesser teams who they struggle to break down, I just think sometimes you could do with a player in the box like Giroud.

“When you get a bit stuck and teams park the bus against you, you end up going wide and you get the ball into the box.

“James Milner does that really well, but you need a player like Giroud who gets on the end of those balls.

“You need a striker that, when you get stuck, you just toss it in there and he turns it into a goal – Giroud does that.

“He’s a top, top player and I think he’d be a good signing for Liverpool.”

Just ignore that Arsenal would not want to sell a player to a direct rival, Giroud would probably only want to leave if he can get first-team football elsewhere, and that Liverpool’s style would have to change dramatically to accommodate him whenever he plays, and the deal is basically done.
