France international striker Olivier Giroud has confirmed he will stay at the North London club and honour his two-year deal despite speculations linking him with a transfer away.

Olivier Giroud did finally came on, but it looked like a dress rehearsal of things to come in the future at the Emirate. The signing of Frenchman Lacazette will only reduce Giroud’s participation in the team, but it looks like he will be satisfied with that.
Olivier Giroud has been linked with a transfer to Everton, but it seems like Arsene Wenger still wants Giroud to remain.
It was not a great performance of his Arsenal career on Sunday, but Giroud has shown his quality on several occasions in the last few seasons.
