Olivier Giroud says he wants to 'carry on his good journey' at Arsenal

Olivier Giroud has played down talk of a big-money summer transfer by insisting that he wants to "carry on his good journey" at Arsenal. Lyon have confirmed that Alexandre Lacazette's move to Arsenal should be completed imminently, leading to increased speculation over Giroud's future. The Ligue 1 club and West Ham have been credited with an interest in signing the France international but he has said he is ready to show he is 'loyal' to Arsenal.

He told the Arsenal website: "I won a few titles in my career, that is an important thing, but there is another thing which is important for me. And that's the people remember you as a loyal warrior on the pitch - that you always give your best for the team. And that's why I want to carry on my good journey at Arsenal and I always want to give my best. I would love to win another title, or maybe more until the end of my contract. The motivation is here, always doing your best to make your family proud."

Giroud, who started just 11 Premier League games last season, recently admitted he would "not settle for another year with such little playing time". Despite this, the 30-year-old pledged his future to Arsenal in January, signing a new two-and-a-half-year contract. He joined Arsenal from Montpellier in 2012 and has since scored 98 goals in 226 appearances in all competitions.

Bit surprised given we just paid a record fee for a striker and Welbeck seemed to be getting ahead of him in the strikers list+world cup coming where he would want to ensure he remains ahead of our new striker. However I am very pleased, he is a good option in our squad who gets a fair amount of goals and offers a different alternative

Yeah, I would be surprised if he were still with us after the transfer window closed. Happy, but surprised.
