However, West Ham have made no secret of their desire to bring in more attacking players this summer and Gold suggested that they don't need to strengthen much elsewhere.

The France worldwide has emerged as one of a number of targets up front for the Hammers, who have been short of options in that area due to persistent injuries suffered by Andy Carroll.

The Sun has previously reported that the Irons are prepared to break their club record transfer to steal the Premier League playmaker away from the Emirates with a bid worth £30million. Giroud's chances of regular game-time in north London could lessen further if Arsenal manage to sign Lyon forward Andre Lacazette, and Winterburn, who enjoyed spells with the Gunners and the Hammers, thinks Giroud would not be short of offers if he did decide to seek pastures new.

Michail Antonio was the top goalscorer for Slaven Bilic's side last season with nine Premier League strikes, despite featuring in a number of positions including right-back, while Carroll started only 15 league matches.

'I think Arsenal have stated that they would like to keep Giroud, but they might need to review the situation depending what happens in the summer, ' Winterburn told beIN Sports.

"I will not settle for limited playing time (next season) like I have this season".

As such, the Hammers, long in the market for attacking reinforcements, appear to be willing to take advantage of each players lack of certainty over the coming season.

Indeed, the majority of these came in the first half of the season, as he found himself rightfully squeezed out by the impressive Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"We have got a good defence, we have got good midfielders, we have got good wingers". It'll be a case of whether West Ham can convince the player to join them'.
