Arsenal attacker Olivier Giroud could leave the club this summer, with his wife reportedly willing the striker to return to France in order to save their struggling marriage.
The 27-year-old was revealed to have cheated on his wife, Jennifer, with model Celia Kay last month, and while the couple have reportedly begun to reconcile, Giroud has been told the only way they can get past his infidelity together is to move back to the continent.
A source told the Sun (relayed by the Metro): ‘[Jennifer] has agreed to take him back but only on the condition they leave London and England.
‘He [Giroud] is desperate to save the marriage because he knows how stupid he’s been – so he is going along with what she wants.’
Arsene Wenger is said to be scouring the globe for attacking reinforcement, with Giroud the only favoured striker on the books; but following this new revelation, Arsenal may have an entire clear-out on their hands, with Nicklas Bendtner and Lukas Podolski also said to be heading for the exit.
What do you think? Would Arsenal cope without Giroud? Let me know in the comments below…
