Everton FC handed clear run at Giroud signing

Ex-Red Insists Liverpool Need to Sign Olivier Giroud

This Premier League striker would be perfect for Klopp

West Ham United reportedly decide to end their interest in signing in-demand Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud.

"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".

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.

Here, ESPN FC's correspondents and bloggers make their sales pitch as to why Giroud should choose the team they cover.

Helping Arsenal win the league title, even in a more limited role, would be a better advert for making France's World Cup squad than starring for a smaller club.

The Arsenal ace was a key target for both West Ham United and Everton. Not this summer at least.

Be a Champions League regular once again, and profit from up-and-coming players like Christian Pulisic and your France teammate Ousmane Dembele. He's got pace and he's at a good age at 28.

"Dare I say it, he plays like a British centre forward, getting hold of the ball in the box and getting on the end of crosses". I do also think we need to inject a bit of pace into the team.

The manner in which he brings others into play by holding the ball up with his impeccable touch and technique could prove to be crucial for Everton this season. Winger Michail Antonio finished as the club's top scorer in 2016-17 with nine goals while Andy Carroll, Diafra Sakho and Andre Ayew found the net just 14 times between them.

West Ham are also hoping they can get deals for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart and Stoke City winger Marko Arnautovic over the line.
