Arsenal star Olivier Giroud has refused to rule out a future move to China.
The French striker who recently signed a new long term contract with Arsenal has refused to close the door to a move to China but only after winning the Premier league with the Gunners.
Less than two weeks into the transfer window, we have already seen some top footballers like Oscar leave England for China and some others throwing tantrums at their clubs after receiving offers from China.
Speaking at an event at Puma last week, Giroud says that he understands why players are rushing to China and that the financial offer in China may be too good for him to turn down. However, he wants to win the Premier League title before considering a move to Asia.
“Honestly, from my point of view I will tell you that I can understand,” Olivier Giroud said on players considering offers to play in the Chinese Super League.
“But if you asked me if I want to go now I will tell you ‘no’.
“The Premier League is my main target so after when I will win it one day, why not, you never know.
“[For now, I want to] carry on the adventure.”
Arsenal are still in this season’s title race and Giroud has played a key role in keeping us on track. The French man has scored important goals for us this season and his comments just goes on to show his desire to help deliver a major title that has eluded us for over a decade.
Giroud is one player at Arsenal that equally divides the opinion of Gooners and i’m sure his comments will now win many fans over.
