Olivier Giroud in talks with Arsenal over new contract

Published 6 Comments

Olivier Giroud has revealed he is currently in talks with Arsenal with regards to extending his contract beyond the summer of 2016.

The France international enjoyed a fruitful at the Emirates Stadium, scoring 22-goals in all competitions as well as creating eight for his Arsenal teammates.

Giroud continued that fine form for Les Bleus against Norway last night, as he scored two - one of particular quality - in a convincing 4-0 win.

At 27, Giroud is about to enter his prime footballing years and is keen to see them spent in north London as a Gunner. With his current contract set to expire in 2016, talks are already underway over a potential extension.

"I have two years left on my contract [until June 2016] but we are in negotiations to extend. For now, I am here. There are many great things to do," he told

"I feel comfortable in the Premier League. My first season not too bad, I had a pretty good second. I hope to do even better [next season]. I am progressing from year to year, the same as the team."

Giroud joined Arsenal in the summer of 2012 after winning the Ligue 1 title with Montpellier. His top scoring efforts were enough to convince Wenger to fork out close to £12m to secure his services; an investment which seems to have been worthwhile.

In two season, Giroud has managed to score 39 goals for Arsenal in 79 starts.
