The Gunners will be arriving in Singapore for the Barclays Asia Trophy really soon and Giroud can't wait to play in Asia.

France international Olivier Giroud said the Gunners are really looking to play in front of their passionate fans in Singapore.

Arsene Wenger's side will arrive there on July 13 ahead of their first Barclays Asia Trophy tie against a Singapore Select XI two days later.

And, Giroud says it's always a pleasure to play in front of their overseas fans.

“It’s always a pleasure and a really good experience because you can see the fans are crazy all over the world,” the 28-year-old told Arsenal Player. “They support the team until they die and they are fantastic.

“A proper fan has to learn all the Arsenal songs so it’s nice to hear them singing our songs and the way they are singing is even more surprising because they sing with their heart.

“I remember when we landed in Vietnam very early in the morning but there were 2,000 people who were waiting for us and cheering us on. It was a great feeling and it makes you want to produce even better performances when you get onto the pitch.”
