Chelsea Confirm Signing Of Olivier Giroud From Arsenal

SKY SPORTSPierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to join Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

That is the opinion of former Arsenal and England star Paul Merson, who has praised reigning Premier League champions Chelsea for their £18m deadline day move for Giroud. The fee is undisclosed, but Sky Sports reported the fee is around £15.3million.

But not many of them - in fact, none, as far as we can see - agree with Merson on this issue. This beautiful story ends today.

In any case, there was no reason to believe they would allow him to become the first Arsenal player since Ashley Cole in August 2006 to defect to Chelsea. However, Aubameyang continued to do the business, scoring 25 and setting up a teammate on eight occasions.

"Maybe they didn't think it could happen but then he became available".

Then, later in the show, Giroud came off the bench for Arsenal v Swansea?! It is absolutely good news for us.

Perhaps this situation was inevitable, though.

Having lifted the Premier League trophy last season, the Blues are once again ahead of the Gunners in the standings with eight points and three places separating the sides. A player who plays for the national team.

"The 28-year-old has joined us on a long-term contract for a club-record fee", Arsenal said in a statement.

It's a far cry from the stiff, corporate farewells that players often issue.

"The most important thing was talking with the coach, Antonio Conte", he told the club's official website. Hazard couldn't fight his way through the defence and his shots were easily kept at bay.

While Aubameyang and Lacazette should both get plenty of goals playing alongside Ozil and Mkhitaryan, it's worth remembering that Arsenal sold their three leading scorers from last season.

The deals helped to push Premier League spending in the January transfer window to £419.5 million ($596 million)-around £200 million above the previous high set in 2011.

Henry said he hoped Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang could strike up an understanding quickly at the Emirates considering the pair used to be teammates at Dortmund. Chelsea in turn only offloaded the Belgium international once its arduous search for a new striker ended across London.
