Before you cast any doubt over Olivier Giroud’s ability and argue that the video below is just another ‘youtube compilation’ which makes a player look better than he actually is, please take note that this footage is NOT another compilation with those unnecessary moves and dribbles.

It is in fact a recap of a number of goals and asissts that the Arsenal-bound striker registered last season. Indeed, not all of his 21 goals which lead Montpellier to the Ligue 1 title are even shown, and if you believe a striker is judged on goals, then go ahead and watch how Giroud gets the job done.

Of course, this is no premature statement that the 25-year-old will set the world alight when he arrives at the Emirates Stadium, but his finishing ability surely looks promising. He is certainly more audacious in front of goal than current second choice centre forward Maroune Chamakh.
