As a member of France national football team, Olivier Giroud has won 64 caps and has scored 27 goals.

Olivier Giroud is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Arsenal this summer and the list of suitors in the France international continues to grow.

The France international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of attacking player Peter Bosz wants to target in the summer transfer window.

Borussia Dortmund are desperate to make an impact in this summer transfer window.

With questions being raised concerning Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future at the club, the Borussia Dortmund boss could well look to Olivier Giroud as an ideal replacement.

Everton, West Ham, Marseille and AC Milan have reportedly registered an interest in his services and have enquired over his availability. It’s now down to the manager and the board to decide his future.

How strong that interest is and whether Borussia Dortmund will make a summer move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
