Arsene Wenger says Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud is injured for 4 months & discusses replacements [Video]

Olivier Giroud picked up an innocuous looking injury in stoppage time of Arsenal’s 2-2 draw at Everton this weekend.

It is much more serious than it looks, with Wenger confirming that Giroud had surgery on his ankle today.

Speaking to the press after Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Besiktas, Wenger claimed the French striker won’t return until late December or January.

Arsenal fans will urge their manager to dip into the transfer market, with the club already (laughably) linked to veteran free agent Nikola Zigic.
