Wenger says new Giroud deal 'done'

30 September 2014, 17:49

London - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Tuesday that a new contract for French striker Olivier Giroud was a "done" deal.

Giroud was reported to have been signed a new deal with the Gunners, but Wenger said on Tuesday that everything was in place barring the formalities.

When asked about the situation with Giroud, currently out injured with an ankle problem, Wenger said: "It is done".

Wenger added: "We want stability and to keep the core of our team together. Giroud is an important player here.

"It is agreed. When it is completely done, we will announce it."

Wenger, speaking ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with Galatasaray, also had a fitness update on Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey.

The former has a calf problem and the latter a hamstring strain, and they are expected to miss four weeks each.

"To be generous with time, four weeks. If all goes well, three. Arteta is the same, maybe a bit quicker. It will be after the international break," he said.

Jack Wilshere trained despite hurting his ankle against Tottenham at the weekend, while Theo Walcott is due to return to training next week after the knee injury which ruled him out of the World Cup.
