Arsenal favorites to land Chelsea striker

Olivier Giroud is a very handy player but to think he has to fill the void left by arguably one of the best strikers in the world Robin van Persie is a big ask for him & for that he’ll have to work really hard. This January transfer window no one of van Persie’s or Suarez’s class striker is available. Olivier Giroud has had a wonderful season than people were expecting and the credit goes down to Arsenal’s creative play and certainly the Frenchman’s form had a big say in Arsenal’s current league position.

To sustain this The Gunners will have to land an equally useful backup for Giroud. Gunners were linked to Demba Ba in a loan move but Jose Mourinho didn’t allow the move to go through as he pulled out of any activity which could end up strengthening their title rivals.

Ba has been restricted to just two Premier League starts this season and is yet to complete 90 minutes in the top flight so far this term, leading to mounting speculation that the Senegalese forward will attempt to leave Stamford Bridge in search of first-team football.

SkyBet rate the Emirates as Ba’s most likely destination before the transfer window slams shut at the end of this month, rating the likelihood of Ba forcing through a winter move across North London at a best-price 2/1.
