Arsenal Fans’ Hilarious Reactions To The Reported Giroud-Higuain Transfer

Arsenal

If you have been living under a rock, in a cave, in Antarctica, let’s just go through recent developments involving a possible cash plus Olivier Giroud deal that would see Napoli star Gonzalo Higuain join Arsenal this summer.

A long-term target of Arsène Wenger, Higuain, it’s fair to say, is the best striker in Serie A at the moment. 36 goals in 35 league games for Napoli last season says it all. Persistently linked with the Argentina international all summer, news broke this week that Wenger is lining up a €50 million bid plus Olivier Giroud in the hope that Napoli will part with their best player.

Though Giroud was the scapegoat for another failed title challenge last season, the Arsenal man did score 24 goals in all competitions, a statistic that proves he is no slouch in front of goal.

Now, as the particulars of the mooted transfer deal emerge, Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to get their thoughts on the deal off their chest.

Here are some of the best.

So it seems that the Gunners’ fans are decidedly mixed when it comes to both Giroud and Higuain.

Whether a deal will actually happen remains to be seen, but given the frugal tendencies of Wenger, offloading one of his best players and forking out another €50 million just doesn’t seem his style.

As with this manic transfer season however, Premier League clubs have more money than sense and when put together, literally anything can happen.
