Olivier Giroud insists that he would welcome the arrival of Jamie Vardy at Arsenal.
Vardy played a huge role in Leicester City's spectacular Premier League title triumph last season.
The England striker, who is currently preparing for Euro 2016, looks on course to make a switch to the Gunners ahead of next season.
With boss Arsene Wenger unlikely to pick two strikers for the majority of matches, Giroud and Vardy will have to compete for a place in Arsenal's starting line-up.
The Frenchman, however, says that he would be happy to have the Englishman on board at the Emirates.
"I have been told that Jamie wants to join us,” Giroud told Sky Sports. “It's very good news for us.
"I think we can be complementary. He's a fantastic player, so it's good news for us."
When asked what formation Wenger will play, should Vardy arrive at the club, Giroud joked in reply: "Obviously four-four-two."
The former Montpellier man continued: "As I said in the past, I am happy with competition. We have always had fantastic strikers at Arsenal, and I want the best for this club.
"Hopefully he is going to help us win this title.
"The boss wanted to sign at least one or two strikers, so I expected a top striker and I think it will benefit the club, and hopefully he is going to score a lot of goals, like he did at Leicester."
