Word has reached us that Giroud and Arteta are set to sign new contracts with Arsenal.
Arsenal hope to keep Giroud till 2018, while Arteta would be given a 12 month extension on his present contract.
What do we think about this development?
Well, bar Arteta having leadership qualities, I think his legs are nearly gone and Arsene should stop beating around the bush…get us a proper defensive midfielder, we need one!
We haven’t done badly in this market but we could tie it up nicely if we get a DM who can double as centre-back when the need arises, much like a half-back in Football Manager 😀
That’s all we have for you for now…
