Olivier Giroud's transfer to Chelsea will see Arsenal hand over 59.7% of their 2016/17 Premier League goals to rival clubs in the January transfer window, following the departures of Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott, stats from daily fantasy football game Oulala.com reveal.   

Manchester United's capture of Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott's switch to Everton earlier in January saw two of Arsenal's top three Premier League scorers last season leave the club this month. 
 
Olivier Giroud's move to Chelsea today will see Arsenal lose all three of their top scorers in the Premier League in 2016/17 to rival clubs. 
 

 
Oulala.com stats show that combined; Sanchez (24), Giroud (12) and Walcott (10) scored a total of 46 Premier League goals in 2016/17, an overall contribution of 59.7% of Arsenal's 77 league goals last season.  
 
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, signed by Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund on transfer deadline day; alongside Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alexandre Lacazette, will be tasked with filling the goal scoring void left by the outgoing trio of Sanchez, Giroud and Walcott.
