Giroud Is Not Leaving Arsenal – Agent

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud will not be leaving the club this summer as widely reported according to his agent.

The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a switch from North London to Napoli, as part of a money plus player deal for Argentine forward Gonzalo Higuian.

But Giroud’s agent Michael Manuello has followed up these rumors by telling TuttoMercatoWebb “everything I’ve read on Giroud is not true”.

He continued to stress that his client is still and Arsenal player, and that “not even for a minute have we thought of another project”.

Manuello has said that he does not know where the Napoli story came from, however this view differs from a statement he gave last week to Radio CRC, where talked about the possibility of Naples providing a wonderful lifestyle for Giroud, and how Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri’s style of football ‘would get the best out of a striker like him’.

Giroud joined the gunners during the summer transfer window of 2012 from Montpellier after winning Ligue 1 and finishing top goal scorer.

In recent seasons he has been seen as Arsenal’s number one striker, meaning a lot of pressure has been put on his shoulders from fans and pundits.

Despite this pressure, he still managed to score 16 Premier League goals during the 2015/16 season, 24 in all competitions. He then went on to score three goals for France during Euro 2016.
