Arsenal target Olivier Giroud has assured Montpellier supporters the Ligue 1 leaders have his full attention as they bid to become champions of France for the first time.

La Paillade are currently above Paris Saint-Germain on goal difference, but retain a game in hand over Carlo Ancelotti's side as the season heads towards its climax.

Giroud has been the star performer for Montpellier this term, having scored 18 times in 27 appearances, while he was also awarded a debut for France last November.

The 25-year-old's potent form has, unsurprisingly, seen him linked with a summer move away from the Stade de la Mosson, and Arsenal appear to be his most high-profile admirers.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsene Wenger has instructed chief-scout - and former Gunners midfielder - Gilles Grimandi to compile a dossier on Giroud, and an attempt to bring him to the Emirates Stadium could be on the cards.

Giroud, though, is not prepared to get distracted by speculation regarding his future, and is only focused on helping Montpellier realise their ambitions this season.

"I can't let it trouble me," he told

"I want to carry on being good with Montpellier and keep producing what I've done since the start of the season, and take the club where it should be, into the Champions league or even higher."
