Olivier Giroud’s agent has moved to clear up speculation surrounding his client’s future at Arsenal.
France international Giroud has found himself confined to a bit-part role with Alexis Sanchez in sizzling form.
The former Montpellier striker was again on the bench for Tuesday’s Champions League win in Basel, coming on for the last 20 minutes of his team’s 4-1 victory.
Giroud has yet to start a Premier League game this season, but despite being linked to Juventus he intends to battle for his place at the Emirates Stadium for now.
However, Giroud — whose contract is up in 2018 — intends to battle for his place at the Emirates Stadium despite being linked with a move to Juventus.
“Olivier is very well at Arsenal,” Michael Manuello told Foot Mercato. “He will make his season here.
“Nothing is possible in January for Olivier. He has no plans to move during the winter transfer window.”
Giroud, speaking last month, said he had no concerns about his long-term future at the Emirates.
“I have no doubts over my Arsenal future,” he said.
“As with each year, there is competition for places at the big clubs. There are a lot of attackers with different styles of play.”
