Giroud's Napoli links dismissed


Olivier Giroud’s agent has denied reports linking the striker with a move to Napoli.

Giroud has been linked with a move away from the Emirates with reports suggesting he could form part of a possible swap deal involving Napoli star Gonzalo Higuain.

His agent Michael Manuello, however, insists the 29-year-old France international has no intention of leaving Arsenal.

"Everything I've read on the Giroud is not true. I personally have only said that if Arsenal want to sell, then we will see," Manuello said.

"But today he is an Arsenal player and not even for a minute have we thought of another project, I would like to stress.

"I do not know where (the Napoli rumours) came from. We never talked to Naples and there are no other persons appointed over me that can do this - we need to clarify this.

"You always need two strikers and (Danny) Welbeck is out for nine months, unfortunately. But if you play in a great team, it is natural that we could face strong competition."
