Arsenal are reportedly prepared to use Olivier Giroud as a makeweight in any deal to try to sign Kylian Mbappe from AS Monaco.

Arsenal have reportedly decided that they are willing to use Olivier Giroud as a makeweight in any deal for AS Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe.

Recent reports have suggested that the Gunners are prepared to break the world transfer record in order to sign the 18-year-old, although Monaco remain intent on keeping the teenager in Monte Carlo.

However, according to the London Evening Standard, manager Arsene Wenger is prepared to include Giroud if it means getting a deal over the line.

The 30-year-old made just 11 starts in the Premier League this season and although he scored a total of 16 goals in all competitions, he may be allowed to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.

The report also claims that Arsenal may be prepared to use Giroud if they fail in a cash-only bid for Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette.
