Striker Giroud not planning to leave Arsenal.
Rumors claimed that Giroud is set to leave Arsenal after the club are very close to complete imminent arrival of Lacazette for £44 million.
The striker just signed a new contract extension of the club but has already mentioned his desire to have more playing time or will be opt to look for another club.
Giroud has finally broke his silence and commit his loyalty to the the club.
“I have won few titles in my career, that is an important thing, but there is another thing which is important for me,” he told during the interview on Arsenal official website.
“And that’s the people see me as a loyal warrior on the pitch and that I always give my best for the team. And that is why I want to carry on my good journey at Arsenal” he added.
Giroud always step up to the place last season and scoring important goals from the bench. The most memorable one could be his last minute equalizer against Man United at Old Trafford.
He plays second fiddle to Alexis Sanchez in the lone striker position most of last season and praying that he would get more chances.
But now that Lacazette is very close to completing his move after Atletico Madrid plan fall through, Giroud could face more competition to prove to the manager.
If the Lyon striker do come through, both Giroud and Lacazette will be fighting for Arsenal and France spot as the World Cup 2018 is coming up and could heat up the competition and rumors for sure.
