Fenerbahce are said to be confident to complete the signing of Arsenal centre-forward Olivier Giroud, according to the reports.
The France international forward has been at Arsenal for more than five years, however, continues to find his minutes in the Premier League limited as he has made just one league start for Arsene Wenger’s side so far this campaign, with his further 14 appearances coming from the bench.
The 31-year-old forward was close to securing a switch to Everton during the summer transfer window, however, the deal fell through and now Giroud has again been linked with the Toffees, as well as West Ham United.
According to Fanatik, however, Turkish giants Fenerbahce head-coach Aykut Kocaman is keen to sign French powerhouse as a replacement for former Arsenal attacker Robin van Persie.
The publication reported that the Turkish club will try to “use the charm of Istanbul to lure Giroud to Fenerbahce as well as the influence of his international teammate Mathieu Valbuena to get the deal done in January.
France international forward is currently on the sidelines with a knee injury, however, is expected to be fit again before the transfer window shuts down.
