Giroud: I feared for Arsenal future over Higuain pursuit

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud admits he was nervous about their pursuit of Gonzalo Higuain.

Giroud felt Higuain would've arrived as a direct competitor and was relieved when he left Real Madrid for Napoli.

"We (He and Higuain) would have been in direct competition because he is a pure central striker. Of course, at the time, it would have bothered me a bit. But I was not afraid of competition."
