Olivier Giroud

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has openly talked about the possibility of leaving England for French Ligue 1 club Lyon at the end of this season.

The former Arsenal striker could leave Chelsea at the end of the current season when his Blues contract expires.

Giroud told Footmercato that a return to France is eye-catching especially Lyon.

The French World Cup winner pointed out that Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas publicly talked about a possible transfer for him as he pointed out that he wants to feel important again.

Olivier Giroud became a Chelsea player in January 2018 after he joined from London rivals Arsenal.

The 32-year-old put pen to paper on an 18-month deal with Chelsea until the summer of 2019 after the Blues paid £18m to secure his signature.

Since his transfer to Chelsea, Giroud has already played second fiddle in the striker’s department.

Ex-Chelsea manager Antonio Conte used star player Eden Hazard as a false nine at the expense of Giroud last season especially when first choice striker Alvaro Morata was not available and current Blues boss Maurizio Sarri repeated the same thing earlier this season.

Olivier Giroud has rarely enjoyed first-team opportunities since his move to Chelsea except in inferior competitions like the Europa League and Carabao Cup.

Manchester United are impressed with West Brom youngster Jovan Malcolm following his goalscoring exploits for the Baggies U18 side which have seen him scored seven goals in the five matches.

The highlight of his performance so far was when he scored four goals against Liverpool in one of the U18 Premier League fixtures.

It is believed that the highly-rated youngster is attracting Solskjaer’s attention but the Red Devils will need to contend with the Gunners for his services.

According to reports via The Mirror, the Gunners are keeping close tabs on the youngster as they look to upgrade their academy this summer.

Liverpool are also in the race to sign the player as he caught the club’s attention after scoring four goals against the young Reds.

The Merseyside club haven’t been enjoying much success when it comes to their youth teams but they hope things will change this season.

However, West Brom are reportedly doing everything possible to retain the 16-year-old beyond this campaign as they hope to give him some first-team actions next season if they return back to the country’s topflight League.

As it stands, none of the interested clubs has made an official approach towards signing the youngster, but that could change as soon as the January transfer window commences.

Unai Emery

Arsenal fans have had their say on the three options to replace underfire manager Unai Emery in the Gunners’ dugout.

The Gunners Faithfuls polled 1,300 votes to choose their top three candidates to replace Unai Emery as the Arsenal manager.

The Arsenal fans voted on Football London to determine their managerial preferences for the Gunners dugout with former midfielder Mikel Arteta amassing almost one-third of the votes.

The former Arsenal and Everton midfielder was linked with the Gunners job last summer by Unai Emery but his compatriot has not been able to live up to the expectations from fans and club bosses.

Unai Emery signed a two-year contract when he became the Arsenal manager last summer with the option of a third year and it looks like this season would be the final campaign for the three-time Europa League winner at Arsenal.

Ex-Juventus boss Maximiliano Allegri resigned from the Old Lady job in the summer and he came second during the aforementioned polls with 17.5% of the votes ahead of Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers who came third with 17.2% of the total votes.

riyad mahrez

Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez has revealed how he came close to joining Arsenal in 2016.

The Algerian international star talked about his close transfer to Arsenal in his latest interview with France Football as he narrated how Leicester City blocked the move against his wish.

Riyad Mahrez had just helped Leicester City to a miraculous title triumph in the Premier League during the 2015/16 season and was keen to leave the Foxes for a bigger club like Arsenal only for the Leicester City officials to kick against the transfer.

According to him, he wasted two years of his productive football life at Leicester City when he could have spent it at a bigger club.

Premier League champions Manchester City were the next big club to try and whisk Riyad Mahrez away from Leicester City.

The Citizens initially met resistance in January 2018 before their endeavor finally paid off last summer when he joined Manchester City from Leicester City for a then club-record fee of £60m and that has been slightly eclipsed by the Rodri transfer from Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid to Manchester City this summer.

Rodri joined Manchester City in a deal worth £62m thus making the transfer the new record.
