Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud appeared to wave goodbye to the travelling fans on Tuesday following the Gunners 3-1 defeat to Swansea.

The Frenchman came on as a second-half substitute to try and rescue something for Arsenal - something Giroud has done on a number of occasions over the last few years.

However, the 31-year-old was unable to make an impact in what has been rumoured would be his final game for Arsenal as Giroud appears to near a deadline day move away from the Emirates.

The former HSC Montpellier striker joined Arsenal in 2012 for £11m and has gone on to represent the club on 253 occasions across all competitions. 

However, Giroud now appears to be on the brink of a move to Chelsea with an impressive record of 105 goals and 41 assists to his name during a six-year spell in north London.

Giroud has been a decisive figure at the Emirates throughout his time at Arsenal, with many fans criticising the Frenchman's style of play.

However, with it looking increasingly likely that Giroud has now played his final game for the club, Gooners have rallied in support of the French international.

Arsenal fans can find some comfort in their most recent acquisition, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabonese striker was confirmed as an Arsenal player on Wednesday morning, signing a long-term contract in north London as the club's new record signing.
