Arsenal lost a great player in Sanchez: Wenger

The Gunners have also yet to get close to Dortmund's €70m valuation of Aubameyang and have now had two offers for the striker rejected by the Ruhr club.

Mariner pointed out Chelsea is still in London so not only would it be a good move for Giroud but also for his other half.

Giroud has found his first team opportunities to be limited this season, with the 31-year-old having only started one of Arsenal's 24 Premier League games so far this term. If it doesn't happen, then we are strong enough to focus on the players we have and focus on the job with the players we have.

However, in an interview with Sky Sports after the semi-final clash against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup Arsene Wenger went on to say, "We lost a great player".

Chelsea FC are considering making a move to try and sign Olivier Giroud from Arsenal in the January transfer window, according to reports in the British media. At the moment, I don't know. It's still possible but we are far from being close,"Wenger is explained at his Friday press conference (Arsenal.com). It is possible we will recruit someone else but I won't give you a name".

ArsenalArsene Wenger says he expects Olivier Giroud to be involved against Swansea on Tuesday but Danny Welbeck is unlikely to return.

"I want Olivier to stay, I just told you that if nobody goes in, nobody goes out", said Wenger.

"Aubameyang - still miles apart Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund", Balague said. "We'll find out today, but the suggestion was he will be", he said. It suits his wife, she doesn't want to leave London. I am perfectly happy with the players I have.
