Ex-Arsenal star Stewart Robson believes that France striker Olivier Giroud will be a good signing for the club.
The 25-year-old centre-forward completed his transfer to the Emirates from Montpellier on Tuesday for £13million.
And Robson feels that he possesses the right attributes to succeed in north London.
“I think it’s a good signing, he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.
“I’ve seen Giroud play for France and Montpellier and he’s an all-round striker. He’s not got pace but he’s got enough athleticism to get in behind people. He’s very good in the air and his link-up play is good.
Robson, though, hasn’t been impressed by Arsenal’s other summer signing Lukas Podolski.
The German striker has netted only once in his three appearances so far in Poland and Ukraine and was dropped when Die Nationalmannschaft beat Greece 4-2.
He added: “I’ve been a little bit disappointed with Lukas Podolski in this tournament. He’s not a player that when he’s out wide left he’s going to go past people and get crosses in but he does come in at the far post well.
“He does the basic things quite well. He’ll pass it into the front players. He’ll get crosses in and he’ll get in at the far post and score goals, so he’s a decent signing for Arsenal.”
