Arsenal player’s agent rules out move to China, Turkey

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is not interested in moving to either China or Turkey, according to his agent.

Giroud has long been linked with a move away from Arsenal, with Everton showing a keen interest in the summer.

The Frenchman turned down a switch to the Toffees however, and remains Arsenal’s second-choice striker behind Alexandre Lacazette.

But Giroud’s agent, Michael Manuello, says the player is not motivated by money when it comes to his future.

“He listens, watches and afterwards he’ll see. There’s no sense in leaving for leaving’s sake,” Manuello said. “It has to be coherent and bring him something more.

“He’ll get playing time at Arsenal, the second half of the season is important, with competitions to play, even if he’s only playing the Europa League.

“He’s not interested in [moving to Turkey]. China neither. Leaving to earn more money is not what is foremost in his thinking.

“Olivier never gives up. He fights for everything. Even if you tell him it’s impossible, he’ll listen to you, but he’ll make you understand that he doesn’t think the same thing.”
