Unable to find any consistency this season, Olivier Giroud has become a super sub for Arsenal, yet to start a Premier League game, scoring three goals and picking up two assists in just 124 league minutes.

The French striker, who is currently out with a thigh injury, has been reported as being slightly disillusioned regarding his squad status this season, and rumours in England have been circulating of a move away in January.

Italy seemed to be a possible destination, with stories linking the 30-year-old to Napoli already emerging in the summer, but a transfer appears to be the last thing on the player’s, and his agent’s, mind.

Speaking to FootMercato, the striker’s advisor made his client’s future very clear.

He said: “I’ve never been in contact with Italian clubs. Olivier is very happy at Arsenal. He’s going to finish his season here. Nothing is possible in January for Olivier. He has no intention of leaving this winter.”

If that doesn’t make the matter clear, we don’t know what will.

Giroud himself has made his intentions of staying at Arsenal rather clear over the past few months, explaining to the French press he was just a bit behind on his fitness due to coming back late from the Euros, and was expecting to stay in London until the end of his current contract (which ends in 2018), at the earliest.
