Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is reportedly on the radar of Everton and West Ham United.

Everton are interested in signing Olivier Giroud from Arsenal in the summer transfer window, according to The Sun.

It has been reported that the Toffees are planning to make a £20 million move for the France international striker.

West Ham United and Marseille are also claimed to be interested in the 30-year-old former Montpellier star.

According to The Sun, Everton manager Ronald Koeman sees Giroud as the ideal replacement for Belgium international Romelu Lukaku, who is claimed to be on the radar of Chelsea.

Giroud has been on the books of Arsenal since 2012, but the Frenchman is no longer guaranteed a place in Arsene Wenger’s starting lineup.

During the 2016-17 campaign, the former Tours striker could make only 11 starts in the Premier League for the Gunners, scoring 12 goals and providing three assists in the process.

Both Everton and West Ham are ambitious clubs, and given Giroud’s experience in the Premier League, he would be a decent signing for either teams in the summer transfer window.
