According to France Football News, Montpellier's forward Oliver Giroud has signed a four-year deal with Arsenal. Past rumors had said that Giroud was waiting for Euro 2012 to finish before making his decision, but the cat was let out of the bag early, and Giroud will be in a Arsenal uniform very soon.

For Arsenal, this is a token situation. In the French league, Giroud scored 21 goals with nine assists and 160 shots in only 36 games.

When Euro 2012 finalizes, it is expected that Giroud will announce his transition over to Arsenal. Giroud is a powerful forward and has a booming kick. Arsenal acquiring someone with that much speed and strength will be a fantastic addition to the football club. 

Another player who has shown interest for Arsenal's team is Yann M'Vila. M'Vila is a French international defensive midfielder that knows how to clear the ball and is aggressive and quick.

The 21-year-old told the Mirror that he didn't know yet what was going to happen within the clubs, but continued to say, "yes, I would be interested in the Premier League and Arsenal.”

Giroud and M'Vila have sincere talent and Arsenal would be lucky to have both men on their roster.
