Today’s most stupid rumour is one which seems to have been launched by today’s People and it’s about Montpellier’s striker Olivier Giroud. The journalists there say that “Tottenham are keen to challenge Arsenal for French forward Olivier Giroud” just a few days after the striker declared that he’d be highly interested in joining the Gunners.
Furthermore, Giroud is a lone striker and can’t be used in the same team with Adebayor who is surely to be fought for by Tottenham. The stupidity of the rumour goes even further if we think that Redknapp is highly likely to become the new national squad manager, and the new manager at Spurs will surely have other targets in mind.
Arsenal have already cut a deal for Podolski according to the newspapers, but Giroud will surely also join if they will be able to agree with him on terms because the Gunners will lose Chamakh in the summer and will surely sell Park and Arshavin for good as well.
Tottenham have a much better chance of catching another Arsenal target, as Ajax defensive man Jan Vertonghen declared that he’d love a move to Spurs if they will take an interest in him.
