Giroud’s longtime France colleague Hugo Lloris, who LAFC signed this winter from English Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur, is now back together with Giroud in goal.

Giroud’s MLS debut might come as soon as LAFC’s regular-season match against Seattle Sounders FC on July 20, as the MLS Secondary Transfer Window starts on July 18. Not long afterward, their Leagues Cup campaign kicks off.

“It is an incredibly exciting day for all associated with LAFC to welcome Olivier, his wife Jennifer, and his family to the club,” LAFC co-president & general manager John Thorrington said in a release.

“Olivier has a clear hunger to win, which he has done consistently throughout his club and international career. His championship ambition and his qualities as a man and as a player directly align with ours as a club. Therefore, we believe Olivier will be a great addition as we continue in our pursuit of more trophies.”

“I am delighted and excited to join LAFC,” Giroud said. “I can’t wait to get to Los Angeles and to play in front of the 3252 and all of the incredible fans.”
