Olivier Giroud’s agent has ruled out a move for the striker when the transfer window opens in January but his comments don’t exactly fill us with confidence that he will be at Arsenal next season.
Linked with a number of Serie A sides for the past year or so, Napoli have been leading the chase according to the papers.
Speaking recently, Giroud’s agent, Michael Manuello, said, “He’s great with the Gunners. He wants to end this season with the Londoners.
“We are not going to move in the next session of the market.”
Giroud is under contract with Arsenal until 2018, just like Alexis and Ozil, however there has been no talk, at least in the media, about a new deal.
You would also expect his agent to say something along the lines of ‘Olivier has a contract with Arsenal until 2018’ but he makes no such statement hinting that there very well could be some big movement this summer.
