Liverpool and Arsenal's hopes of signing Olivier Giroud have taken a blow after the Montpellier striker confirmed his agent is in talks with Bayern Munich, according to

The Montpellier forward looks set to quit French football at the end of this season, but the striker could spurn a move to the Premier League and instead opt to join the German giants.

The Champions League finalists are keen to add another forward to their squad for next season. Mario Gomez has spearheaded the Bavarian's attack this year, but beyond the German international, Bayern are short of high quality options.

Speaking to Sport Bild, Giroud said: "I haven't spoken with Bayern Munich personally but my agent has been in touch with them."

The presence of Giroud's French international teammate Franck Ribery could be enough to persuade the Montpellier striker to join the Bundesliga side.

"Bayern Munich are very well known in France because of all the positive experiences other French players have had there," he added.

The 25-year-old frontman has 21 league goals for Montpellier this season and his French club sit top of Ligue 1 above PSG. His impressive performances have attracted a number of Premier League scouts, including those from Arsenal, Liverpool and Newcastle.

However, it looks as though Arsene Wenger and Kenny Dalglish have missed out on the highly-rated striker this time around.
