Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has revealed that he is in discussions to extend his contract at the club.
The Frenchman’s current deal is set to expire in 2016, but the Gunners are eager to extend his current stay as they look to win more silverware next season.
Giroud, 41.00 to finish as the top goal scorer at this summer’s World Cup, once again led the line for Arsene Wenger’s side in the last campaign, scoring 22 goals as he helped them qualify for the Champions League and win the FA Cup.
Although Wenger is thought to be looking for a new striker, Giroud looks set to lead the line again next season after a busy few months.
The former Montpellier striker will look to grab the headlines this summer as he tries to help France to win the World Cup in Brazil, with Les Blues at odds of 24.00 with Dafabet to win the tournament.
He continued his fine form by scoring two goals in France’s 4-0 win over Norway on Tuesday and he is hoping to work on his game and fire Arsenal to glory next season.
Giroud told footmercato.net: “I have two years left on my contract but we are in negotiations to extend.
“For now, I am here. There are many great things to do. I feel comfortable in the Premier League. My first was not too bad. I had a pretty good second. I hope to do even better (next year).
“I am progressing from year to year, the same as the team.”
