Giroud: "I want to carry on."

Olivier Giroud has revealed he will soon sign a new deal at Arsenal. The France international who has scored some vital goals for the Gunners this season, will like to stay at the Emirates. Giroud's current deal expires in June 2018 but the 30-year-old has quashed rumours suggesting he could move away from the north London club because he isn't guaranteed a starting position, with Arsene Wenger preferring to deploy Alexis Sanchez in the no.9 spot. "People have been saying I have signed a new contract, but that is not true. Maybe soon, though," Giroud told reporters.

"I came back a bit late from the Euros and it was nice for my body because I could rest but not good for me because the team was doing well and another striker was doing well up front. "This season has been difficult because also I was injured for a month and a half so it has not been easy.

"But it is all about keeping the focus high. Always keep working hard at training. I was speaking with the boss, we had a couple of discussions together and he explained to me why I had not played too much until now. "As long as the team is getting better I am happy and I am part of the club for five years and I want to carry on. But we have to see, I need more time of games but we will see in the future."
