Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud has said that he is happy at the club and is looking to extend his contract.

The 27-year-old expressed his delight at life in London and has also admitted that he is desperate for Arsene Wenger to remain as manager.

"Of course I will be at Arsenal next season. I am happy in London," he told Telefoot. "I have a contract until 2016. Why not extend? I'll still be a Gunner next year, at least I'd like to be.

"I want Wenger to stay at Arsenal next season. Of course we want him to extend his contract. We need him, his experience, he has to stay.

"We want to win the Cup, but fourth is our priority. Arsenal have had Champions League football for 17 years. I do think we can compete for the title next season, and this time all the way to the end."

Giroud has scored 20 goals for the Gunners in all competitions this season.
