Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) is set to shake up the soccer world with this heavyweight signing. Within a few hours, the club will make the official announcement of the arrival of renowned French striker Olivier Giroud, who will leave his mark on the European soccer pitches to land in the United States and shine in Major League Soccer (MLS).

Giroud's decision to join LAFC had a key element: the influence of his compatriot and current goalkeeper of the club, Hugo Lloris. Lloris played a significant role in introducing the striker to the advantages and potential success he could find in MLS, especially under the spotlight of LAFC.
