Arsenal turn down approaches for Olivier Giroud?

Arsenal reportedly offer no encouragement to a number of clubs said to be interested in striker Olivier Giroud.

Arsenal have reportedly told any club interested in Olivier Giroud that the striker is not for sale.

After a poor second half to the last campaign, it was claimed that the French international could leave the Emirates Stadium during the summer, but it now appears that he will remain with the Gunners for a fifth season.

According to The Mirror, Arsenal have received a number of approaches for the 29-year-old but a decision has been made to keep the forward in North London.

Last year, Giroud scored 16 goals in 38 Premier League matches, but the majority of those strikes came before Christmas and he came in for fierce criticism during the closing months as Arsenal failed to maintain a title challenge.

However, he has netted three times for France at Euro 2016 and is considered to be a major part of Arsene Wenger's plans next season.
