Arsenal target Olivier Giroud insists he will only make a decision over his future after Euro 2012.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with the Montpellier forward who ended last season as Ligue 1’s joint-leading scorer, helping his side to the league title in the process.
Giroud earned his first cap for France in November and has been included in Laurent Blanc’s squad for Euro 2012, with the striker insisting he is focusing solely on representing his country for the time being.
"I am calm and I know I'm on the market,” he told Le Parisien.
"But I have a contract with Montpellier and after Euro 2012 we will value the various offers and decide which is best for us all."
Arsenal are said to be keen on the 25-year-old ahead of a possible revamp of their attacking line. While Robin van Persie’s future hangs in the balance he is expected to stay at the Emirates, however Marouane Chamakh and Nicklas Bendtner are likely to depart.
Giroud has attracted interest from rivals Tottenham in the past, although they appear to have switched their focus to Giroud’s international team-mate Loic Remy.
The Gunners have already been proactive this summer in securing the services of Lukas Podolski, while a deal for Yann M’Vila is said to be in the offing, although it is far from completed.
