Arsenal transfer news and rumours: Olivier Giroud to partner Wayne Rooney at Everton next season?

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud’s £20m move to Everton is on, according to reports.

With Wayne Rooney also supposedly headed to Goodison, it’s believed Giroud is the ideal replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who wants to go back to Chelsea.

The Sun believes the Frenchman would operate up front with Rooney in a No.10 role after Lukaku goes for a rumoured £90m.

Everton scout Carlo Jacomuzzi likes the idea, telling Italian radio that Giroud for £20m would be a bargain when put alongside the £22m Napoli wanted for Duvan Zapata.

Arsenal seal £52m deal for £200,000-a-week Alexandre Lacazette – and now set sights on £80m Thomas Lemar

Arsenal sealed a record breaking £52m deal for Alexandre Lacazette on Tuesday night – and then prepared to carry on spending, writes John Cross.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is now plotting moves for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar, with Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez a back-up option.

Mirror Sport can reveal that Monaco have quoted Arsenal a staggering £80m price tag for Lemar as they do not want to sell and that deal now seems increasingly unlikely unless a compromise can be reached.

That has opened the door for Arsenal to go for Mahrez who is keen on a switch to the Emirates with Leicester braced for an approach but no official bid has been made.

Wenger has already publicly admitted his admiration for Mahrez as Arsenal look to shake up the squad even after Lacazette’s arrival shatters the previous record set when they signed Mesut Ozil for £42.5m in 2013.
