Aubemayang is a target for Chelsea, who wish to sign him as Diego Costa’s replacement. If Dortmund sold the Gabonese forward then it was believed they would try to sign Giroud as his replacement. However, with Aubameyang now staying put, it opens the door for Everton to sign the Frenchman as they have less competition for the 30-year-old.
The report claims that Everton are second-choice for Giroud, behind Dortmund.
The Gunners are demanding at least £20m for Giroud and would be looking to make a significant profit from the £9.6m that they spent signing him from Montpellier in 2012.
