Giroud wants to remain at Arsenal this summer

Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud has insisted that his “future is in the Premier League”, but the Frenchman has admitted that he could be tempted with interest from Marseille.

Giroud, 30, scored 16 times in all competitions for Arsenal last season, but he only started 11 Premier League fixtures during what was a frustrating league campaign.

The striker continues to hit the goal trail for France, however, and netted his first international hat-trick in Friday’s 5-0 win over Paraguay.

Giroud has conceded that an approach from Marseille would be of interest, but the 62-time France international has said that he ‘still has titles to win in England’.

Giroud told Telefoot:

“I am not insensitive to the approaches of the French clubs and especially that of Marseille. But my future is in the Premier League.

“I still have titles to win.¬†After the FA Cup, we will go for the league title. That’s my goal.”

Giroud, who has scored 26 times in 62 appearances for the French national team, joined Arsenal from Ligue 1 side Montpellier in the summer of 2012.

The forward has managed 98 goals in 226 fixtures for Arsenal, but he remains an outcast with some supporters that feel he is incapable of performing at the very highest level.
