West Ham are interested in signing Arsenal’s Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud this summer, according to reports.

Giroud signed a new contract with the Gunners last season, but it is no secret the Frenchman has grown frustrated over a lack of game time.

The 30 year-old started just 11 times in the Premier League last season, despite an impressive minutes-to-goal ratio.

Arsene Wenger has stressed his desire to keep hold of the striker also linked with a move to Lyon, with Alexander Lacazette heading the other way.

Last season marked Theo Walcott’s tenth at Arsenal. However, the England man continued to endure a campaign full of inconsistencies.

The Hammers face a battle persuading the Gunners to accept their offer for the two forwards.

Slaven Bilic’s side had been previously linked with Lucas Perez. The Spaniard sat out much of last season, but could yet figure into Arsene Wenger’s plans next term.
