Olivier Giroud

GETTY Olivier Giroud urged to leave Arsenal in January to boost World Cup chances

His lack of game time has left France manager Didier Deschamps anxious about his prospects for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation. Alexandre Lacazette, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Anthony Martial and Ousmane Dembele are among the options at Deschamps' disposal. And Guy Stephane has issued a word of warning to the 31-year-old about his spot in Deschamps' final squad for Russian Federation.

Speaking to French TV channel TF1, Stephan said, "It's clear that playing time is not enough, and Didier has had the opportunity to talk to him about it. Olivier has to find a solution in the weeks to come".

Arsenal star striker Olivier Giroud could be on his way out of the north London-based club in January.

Well, Stephane is aware he has to find a solution.

"It's up to him to see. He's been very good in the past, [for France] and he's played a lot of games and scored very important goals, so now he has to play".
