Everton have received a boost in their pursuit of Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud.

Borussia Dortmund’s decision to keep hold of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leaves them unlikely to make a bid.

The German club were said to be Giroud’s preferred choice of destination this summer following the arrival at Arsenal of Alexandre Lacazette.

According to The Telegraph, Everton believe they are next in line in the race for Giroud, with the Gunners set to demand £20m.
