Arsenal have been dealt an injury scare ahead of the upcoming north London derby after Olivier Giroud appeared to pick up a knock during France training.

The Gunners frontman was seen clutching his leg during a session at Clairefontaine on Monday evening.

He is reported to have carried on the session but it remains to be seen if he will take to the field in a friendly against Wales on Friday, according to Football.London.

Giroud has played a key role in helping France qualify for next year’s World Cup in Russia, despite struggling to earn a regular place in the Arsenal team this season.

Gunners chief Arsene Wenger will, however, be keeping his fingers crossed that the experienced attacker is available to face in-form Spurs, while Manchester United follow soon after.
