Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Olivier Giroud will stay at Arsenal after the forward showed his importance with the last-minute winner against Leicester (via Sky Sports).
Arsene Wenger has put an end to the rumours surrounding Olivier Giroud’s future at the club amid interest in the striker from a couple of Premier League rivals.
The match against Leicester showed Olivier Giroud’s importance perfectly as the Frenchman came off the bench to score an 85th-minute winner.
Despite that, the forward has spent the summer strongly linked with a move to the likes of Everton and West Ham United but Wenger put an end to that.
“I love the man and the player because he is a fantastic guy, he is committed and loves the club and he does not want to leave and I am happy that he wants to stay,” Wenger said after the match.
“But at some stage, I opened the door for him because I knew that I had many strikers, but he is really loved here and we love him and in the end, he decided to stay.”
