When Arsenal were choosing a player to model their new third kit, Olivier Giroud was, of course, their first choice.
The French striker is famed for his good looks and back in February 2015, the French international striker was named as the ‘Hottest Player in the Premier League’ after Paddy Power surveyed 250 women.
Well, when Giroud appeared on Instagram modelling Arsenal’s new strip, fans of the club took it upon themselves to lavish yet more praise on his irritating good looks via Reddit.

Yeah, Arsenal fans may have taken it just a tad too far. Giroud’s future at the club is uncertain after he declared that he was desperate for more game time to maintain his position in France’s starting XI.
Arsene Wenger started Danny Welbeck in the FA Cup final and is said to be pursuing Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, so Giroud may opt to leave the Emirates this season in search of first-team football.
