Arsenal have targeted PSV forward Hirving Lozano as a replacement for Oliver Giroud, the Gunners could reportedly swoop for the exciting striker should Giroud, who is a target for a host of European clubs, push for a move in the winter transfer window.
Since the arrival of Alexandre Lacazette at the Emirates last summer window, the 31-year-old Giroud who has been a victim of the Gunners strength in depth in attack may be very well tempted by a move away from the Emirates as he is yet to start a Premier League game thus far this season.
The French forward is understood to be considering making a switch mid-season to secure his spot in the French squad heading for the World Cup next summer having recently fallen behind teammate Lacazette in the pecking order of the national side.
According to Sky Sports via Squakwa, should Giroud try to force an exit in January, the Gunners would look to replace him immediately.
The report states that Arsenal have already cast their eyes on potential replacements with Mexico’s rising star Lozano high on their wishlist. Despite being new to European football, the Mexican international has been in superb form for the Dutch side so far this season.
The report further states that Gunners head scout Alex Rowley has been watching the Eredivisie club in recent weeks to keep a close eye on Lazano.
The 22-year-old who only singed from Pachuca for €8million in July already has six goals and four assists to his name after just six league appearances.
