Yet to open his scoring account during his time at Arsenal, the pressure is starting to mount and the questions are beginning to rise around the qualities of Olivier Giroud.
Football is arguably as much about business as it is about sport in the modern era. Like any business, investors want results, and they want them yesterday.
