Furthermore, the electric forward's reported wage demand of £400,000-per-week is apparently making it difficult for the French manager to convince the star to extend his contract.
Yet Giroud has his supporters too.
Both camps have their points.
"The first half of my time here at Western Sydney was a bit of a battle", he said.
While record-signing Alexandre Lacazette grabbed the headlines with a goal on his Arsenal debut, it was Nelson who provided Wenger with a glimpse of an outstanding Highbury future. "If you thought that might diminish his impact in front of goal he provided a firm riposte after just 15 minutes in the fray, ghosting into the box to sidefoot home a smart cross from the right".
Lacazette's arrival has changed the dynamic in north London.
"But what we look for is basically to play at a good pace. and for long periods in the game that was quite good for us and a game with a tough opposition and they did fight for every ball".
Borussia Dortmund - as in, the Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga? It was also a successful debut for defender Sead Kolasinac, who looked calm and composed on the ball whilst also showing his strength whilst defending.
Alex Iwobi insists Alexandre Lacazette has already settled into life at Arsenal following his club-record move to the Emirates.
Granted, he is not exactly in high demand among Europe's elite this summer after flattering to deceive for large chunks of the previous campaign.
Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer?
Having scored 35 goals for Lyon last season, Iwobu has been impressed with what he has seen so far. It's a World Cup year and anything less than regular football may see Giroud lose out to Lacazette for club and country.
"It's a big change for me and my family but I take a decision that I need to change and that I need to leave La Liga".
Bringing in Giroud to act as the platform to tee up other players to rip teams apart is one way of plugging the Aubameyang gap.
