Arsenal are keeping a close eye on Montpellier striker Olivier Giroud, according to club scout Gilles Grimandi.
The 25-year-old Montpellier striker, who has bagged 15 goals in 20 games this season, is one of several possible summer targets being tracked by the Gunners ahead of possible transfer action this summer.
Confirming that Arsene Wenger’s team are monitoring a host of targets in Europe and South America Grimandi told French website Le 10 Sport:
“We look at a lot of interesting players, and we are following Giroud.
“We’re following his progress, it’s impossible not to look at the way he’s progressed in the last two years.
“Now we must try to assess the scope for improvement. I think he has the potential for the best clubs in Europe.
“That’s one of the players that we’re currently looking at, but there’s also between 20-30 other players from Europe and South America that we’re keeping an eye on.”
