Giroud joined Arsenal from French outfit Montpellier in 2012 on a deal worth £9.6m and signed a five-year contract with the Gunners.

However, his future at the club has come under doubt lately and recent reports have linked him with a return to France this summer, but he has insisted that he is going nowhere just yet.

“My contract runs until 2016, of course I’ll remain a Gunner next year, this is certainly my will”, the 27-year-old told French outlet Telefoot.

“Don’t listen to the media. I am happy in London and my future lies with Arsenal”

Giroud has bagged himself 14 goals in 33 appearances for the club this term, and has had to deal with the burden of being the club’s only out-and-out striker.

Former club Montpellier, where he notched up 21 league goals during the club’s Ligue 1 winning season in 2011/12, had been linked with a move to bring him back to the club, while PSG had also rumoured to be interested in his signature.
