Olivier Giroud would be open to leaving Arsenal for Napoli, should the club ask him to leave, his agent has revealed.
The France international was linked with a potential swap move as part of a deal that would see Gonzalo Higuain join The Gunners.
Arsene Wenger is believed to be in the market for a new striker and saw Jamie Vardy knock back a move to the Emirates earlier in the summer.
The French coach is a fan of Argentina international Higuain and the cost of a deal for him would be reduced by including his compatriot in the deal.
Giroud’s agent Michael Manuello has confirmed that his client would be open to a move to Naples should Arsenal ever ask him to leave.
‘There is no fear from Olivier about possibly going to Napoli: it is a magnificent city.
‘In Campania, my client could lead a wonderful life.
‘Not to mention that the type of game played by Sarri could enhance the quality of a centre-forward like him.
Whether this story is true remains to be seen but one thing we know is as long as it is Arsenal, transfer stories like this will never cease to surface.
