Transfer news: Laurent Koscielny hailed Olivier Giroud
Arsenal star Laurent Koscielny is delighted that Olivier Giroud has joined the club.
The pair played together at Tours and believes that he will be a success in the Premier League.
“I am happy [he has joined the club] because he played very well at Montpellier,” Koscielny told Arsenal Player.
“I played with him at Tours and he was a great player then – now he is even more confident and scores a lot of goals. I know his qualities and he will give a lot for us.
“I know he has the physical quality to play in this league. For a striker it is [about] confidence and I am sure he is working hard to start well with Arsenal.
“He is tall, like Marouane Chamakh and is also good with his back to goal. I think if we play with technical guys he will be happy, and in the box he is a good finisher.”
