Report: Arsenal unlikely to sign new striker despite Olivier Giroud injury
Arsenal is unlikely to sign a player to replace Olivier Giroud after the striker injured his ankle last weekend, the BBC reports.
Giroud was injured in the team’s 2-2 draw at Everton on Saturday, during extra time.
According to the report, the club plans to stick with Alexis Sanchez, Joel Campbell, Yaya Sanogo, Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott. Giroud, who scored 16 goals in 36 Premier League games last season, could miss up to three months if his ankle is broken.
Arsenal squares off in the Champions League play-off second leg against Besiktas on Wednesday. The first leg ended in a 0-0 draw last week.
Arsenal has four points in the Premier League season after a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace and the Everton draw.
