Arsenal striker dismisses speculation of summer departure
Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has distanced himself from a return to France, insisting his future is in the Premier League, per Sky.
Giroud, 30, is a popular member of the Arsenal squad, but has been linked with a summer departure, with Arsene Wenger said to be planning a summer rebuild after agreeing a new two-year contract at the club.
Kylian Mbappe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are just two of the strikers linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium.
But Giroud, who has been linked with a move to ambitious French club Marseille, insists he still has plenty to do with the Gunners in England.
“I am not insensitive to the approaches of the French clubs and especially that of Marseille,” he told French TV show Telefoot.

“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.”
