Everton boss Koeman convinced Giroud wants January move

Everton boss Ronald Koeman is confident of landing Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud in January.

The Mirror says Koeman is set to push through a £40 million deal for the striker in the New Year after failing to land the forward he wanted to replace Romelu Lukaku.

The Dutchman has been coming under fire for his failure to sign a replacement for the Toffees' leading scorer last term.

Giroud was understood to be keen on a move to Merseyside as he had not been guaranteed regular first-team football at the Emirates.

With the World Cup in Russia approaching fast and the striker currently being the fulcrum of an attack that boasts a galaxy of riches, the 30-year-old is keen to play regularly.
