But after deciding to stick it out for a sixth season at Arsenal, Giroud was the north London club's match-winner on the opening day of the new Premier League campaign after coming off the bench.
Shinji Okazaki scored a fifth minute equaliser, Jamie Vardy put Leicester ahead and Danny Welbeck levelled for Arsenal before halftime.
"I opened the door for him at some stage as I had many strikers and it's important for him to play but I don't want him to go".
Two minutes later, the comeback was complete, with super-sub Giroud sending the home fans wild via magnificent header from a Xhaka corner, despite being held by Wes Morgan. "He has a big weight in this squad and it was a relief for me that he chose to stay".
Praising Giroud's response after being left out of the starting line-up, Wenger added: "I love the man and the player".
We had a lot of experienced defenders out injured for the game.
"The second goal was scored after a poor pass, which can happen, but we conceded the other two after corners.
Then we made mistakes and they punished us", Cech said. "So overall I think he adapts slowly to the way we want to play and is a collective player and an intelligent player as well".
"If you look at the third goal, I'm a bit disappointed with the handball leading up to it but that aside, once you get the corner, you have to defend it better". You can not keep the strikers happy when they don't play.
Lacazette was off the mark in Arsenal colours with just his second touch of the ball - the first being from kickoff - as he nodded home 10 yards out from a first-time Mohamed Elneny cross.
"I don't know how good everyone will be".
Now with a weird back four of (from right to left) Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Monreal, Kolasinac and Hector Bellerin, Arsenal pushed for an equaliser, and on 83 minutes it came.
