Chelsea close on Giroud deal

Swansea Make Bid For Andre Ayew But West Ham Want Ki In Return

Monaco would be a better choice from Arsenal's perspective if the striker is to leave, but with Giroud hoping to remain in London, that may not be a serious option.

Giroud was highly rumoured to be part of the deal that would see the 31-year-old striker join the Bundesliga club on a six-month loan deal. That means that all three clubs may not get what they want before tomorrow night's transfer deadline.

"I have no problem with that and put him on because it was needed. He is a great player but he does not play in a position for which we urgently need new players". Dortmund boss Peter Stoger says Pierre Emerick Aubameyang will still play in upcoming games despite bids from Arsenal to bring him to the Premier League. He has a World Cup where France will go, places of course are hard to get. "His heart was always 100 per cent with the team".

However the home side equalised a minute later through the excellent Sam Clucas who slotted past Petr Cech.

"It's a tribute to Olivier", Wenger said. "We have no rational explanation for the way we gave the goal away straight away".

The Gabon global is now in London after jetting in from Germany to undergo his medical with Arsenal but will only be able to join Arsene Wenger's side if Dortmund lands a replacement before today's deadline.

For Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal the victory was his third in five Premier League matches since he took charge and lifted his club from bottom of the table to above the relegation zone.

"Now we are breathing and we are not dead anymore".

A century of goals for the Gunners tells you he knows how to find the net. "We are in a good position and the way they are playing, the commitment they are showing, it is promising".
