Arsenal morning news: Giroud contract details, will Arteta be next?

Giroud Celebrates

A round up of news stories about Arsenal this morning.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has reportedly agreed a new contract with the club.

Several sources are saying the Frenchman has signed a new four-year deal with the Gunners, keeping him at the Emirates until 2018.

The Mirror claims the deal to be worth in the region of £80,000 per week.

The Gunners are also thought to have offered a one-year deal to captain Mikel Arteta.

The Spaniard’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the current season.

The Mail claims Arsene Wenger’s policy for players over 30-years-old is to offer them one-year rolling deals.

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck says he’s unhappy he wasn’t able to score in the North London derby.

The £16 million summer arrival from Manchester United didn’t get on the score sheet as Arsenal and Spurs shared a 1-1 draw last night.

“I really wanted to get the three points so I’m a bit unhappy,” said Welbeck.
