Olivier Giroud’s agent says the French international would be a success at Napoli amid reports Arsenal are considering a cash-plus-player bid for Gonzalo Higuain.
Arsenal are in the market for a hitman this summer, with their pursuit of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy ending unsuccessfully after he signed a new contract with champions Leicester.
Alexandre Lacazette, Karim Benzema and Higuain have all been mentioned as potential targets, with Giroud’s days as Arsenal’s first-choice striker seemingly numbered.
Recent reports have suggested the Gunners are putting together a £42million package to tempt Napoli into parting with Argentina star Higuain, with Giroud heading to Naples in part-exchange.
“As of today, Giroud is an Arsenal forward. If they were to ask him to leave, then we’d evaluate the situation.
“There would be no fear for Olivier to go to Napoli, as we’re talking about a magnificent place.
“In Naples, my client could have a wonderful lifestyle, not to mention that Maurizio Sarri’s style of football would get the best out of a striker like him.”
