Fenerbahce have joined the race to sign Olivier Giroud, according to reports in Turkey.

Giroud is being linked with an exit from Arsenal due to the arrival of Alexandre Lacazette.

Wenger is unwilling to lose the French man but his desire to play regular football could make it difficult for us to keep him.

Everton, West Ham and Marseille have all been linked with the striker already but it is the Toffees who are leading the race for his signature.

Haberler via The Daily Cannon has now revealed that there is a new suitor from Turkey as Fenerbahce join the race to sign the striker.

However, the report claims Fenerbahce only want the 30 year old on loan.

Arsenal have reluctantly placed a £30m bid on the striker because Wenger do not want to lose him, so it is unlikely he would sanction a loan move.

The other three clubs interested in signing the striker are ready to pay in excess of £20m for the striker which means Fenerbahce have no chance to sign him on loan even if Wenger decides to sell.

Giroud struggled for regular football at Arsenal last season and although he would prefer to remain at the Emirates, he knows his chances of playing as he would want has been further reduced by the arrival of Lacazette.
