Olivier Giroud has played down links with Marseille by stressing he’s still targeting Premier League success with Arsenal.
The striker, who scored a hat-trick for France in Friday’s 5-0 win over Paraguay, signed a contract extension at the Emirates in January but has been concerned by a lack of regular game time.
Of his 40 appearances last season, the Frenchman made 23 off the bench, including his cameo in the FA Cup final when he set up Aaron Ramsey’s winner against Chelsea.
Speaking to France television show Telefoot, Giroud revealed: “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 is two goals shy of completing a century for the Gunners; a decent return for a player who signed for £12 million five years ago. He’ll no doubt be needed should Alexis Sanchez quit the club this season.
