Arsenal star's agent: Secret meeting wasn't to discuss exit ploy

Published 2 Comments

Mickael Manuello, the agent of Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud, has insisted the star's meeting with influential football agent Muzzi Ozcan wasn't to discuss a strategy to leave Arsenal, reports The Daily Mail.

Giroud has had a torrid time of late, with problems with his personal life having been exposed in the media, and now reports have suggested that the Frenchman was looking to depart north London.

Giroud was snapped speaking to Ozcan, however the striker's agent has suggested that talks were just about commercial prospects.

Ozcan, who reportedly has strong links to French money-bags Paris Saint-Germain, tried to take Chelsea captain John Terry to Galatasaray last summer.

However, it appears that Giroud's meeting in Hampstead on Thursday evening wasn't to discuss an exit strategy out of Arsenal.

The Frenchman has been a key member of Arsenal's side this season and has been Arsene Wenger's No.1 striker at the Emirates.

Arsenal fans will be hoping Giroud is full prepared for the side's clash with north London rivals Tottenham tomorrow afternoon.
