Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has said he would welcome the competition another striker would bring if Arsene Wenger manages to sign someone in the transfer window.

The Arsenal boss has been chasing reinforcements for his attack all summer with pursuits for Gonzalo Higuain and Luis Suarez failing to bear fruit.

Karim Benzema is the latest target for Wenger with the club being linked with a £40m move for the French international.

However, they look to have hit an impasse with regards to that as well after the player's agent claimed he will not be leaving Real Madrid this summer and described Benzema as being at "the club of his dreams."

If a big name does arrive at the Emirates before the transfer window closes, it will likely mean less playing time for Giroud but the Frenchman would be happy to compete for his place with world-class team mates.

Giroud has got his season off to a flyer, scoring three goals in three match in all competitions and said to reporters: "I am in a good run, I feel really confident.

"I feel good in the game and I do the job on the pitch. No doubts, no more questions.

"If there is a new striker coming, it's a good thing for the squad, and I try to give it up for the team, help the team to win. Nothing more."

Giroud scored the first goal in the 3-1 win over Fulham at the weekend at Giroud revealed the club were relieved to recover from their opening day defeat to Aston VIlla.

"I did well (at Fulham), like the team," Giroud added."I really wanted to help the team to win after the bad result against Aston Villa.

"We were really disappointed with that and we wanted to correct it and dictate the game. That's what we did, like in Fenerbahce, and we are really pleased with that.

"We really wanted to show that the squad is together. We want to give an answer together on the pitch, and we did that."We played really well and we scored three goals, and now we are really confident."
