Arsene Wenger wants to keep his compatriot at Arsenal but Giroud has made it clear that he doesn't want another season where he is not a certainty in the starting eleven.
"Laurent is suspended in the first two games of the season so I do not need to take any gamble with him".
A brilliant crowd of 80,000 watched Arsenal as they beat Sydney FC 2-0 on Thursday, with Per Mertesacker, in his last season as a player, scoring the opening goal, and Lacazette, in his first season as an Arsenal player, rounding things off towards the end.
With the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Shkodran Mustafi, Hector Bellerin and others left out of the tour squad after global duty, Wenger chose to take a number of youngsters with him and is happy with all the performances.
Poursuivi par la police, un conducteur se tue à scooter — Aulnay
Des motards de la police municipale, suivis de policiers de la police nationale, le retrouvent une nouvelle fois. Dans la soirée du 14 juillet, un homme de 35 ans est décédé à Aulnay-sous-Bois, en Seine-Saint-Denis.
The Gunners had to wait nearly another 80 minutes before finding the back of the net again when new French signing Alexandre Lacazette celebrated his debut goal for the club following some good work out wide from another sub Alex Iwobi.
"It's a big game for us and for the fans and I hope I'm on the field. No matter what happens, I did my job on the pitch". "You have players who come in and settle really, really quickly".
"Hopefully we can show Arsenal how football has progressed in this country and hopefully they'll take away fond memories of their time here".
But it was his impact in the 83rd minute that will have pleased Wenger and the club's fans, with the forward timing a run into the box impeccably before connecting crisply with the ball to steer home Alex Iwobi's low cross from the right.
The Australian champions had goalkeeper Andrew Redmayneto thank for not succumbing to a heavier defeat as the 28-year-old, who had a two-week trial at Arsenal as a youngster, pulled off a string of fine saves.
The Gunners now prepare for their second Sydney match, a meeting with Western Sydney Wanderers in Sydney today.
