You could forgive Olivier Giroud for feeling sad at Arsenal.
After all, the Gunners seem to be batting their eyelashes at Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain, as Arsene Wenger looks for a steady supply of goals this season.
26-year-old French international Giroud arrived at the Emirates from Montpellier with a big reputation ahead of last season, having helped fire the French minnows to the Lique 1 title.
After a slow start to his Gunners career, Giroud seemed to adapt to the Premier League well, and he finished his first season in England with a creditable 17 goals to his name.
Giroud scored an emphatic brace in Arsenal’s 7-0 pre-season romp over the Indonesia Dream Team at the weekend, and Wenger believes his compatriot is ready to face any challengers to his striking berth that the Gunners sign.
"I like Olivier very much,” Wenger said.
“He scored 17 goals in his first year in England when he needed to adapt and I'm sure he will respond.”
Most Arsenal fans would feint from pleasure if the club were to splash out for once, and sign a player as expensive as Higuain and Suarez are likely to be.
But even if they don’t, there seems to be a lot of faith amongst the Emirates faithful in Giroud’s ability.
He is strong, fast and a clinical finisher, and appears to have the right attitude to succeed.
So whether or not he has a new big-name team-mate to compete with this season, perhaps Wenger is right, and big things should be expected from Olivier Giroud.
