Olivier Giroud has admitted that he could still leave Arsenal after the arrival of Alexandre Lacazette at the club.

He is on Arsenal’s pre-season tour to Australia and manager Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he wants to keep both French strikers.

But as Arsenal launched their third kit for next season, Giroud was asked whether it was still an option for him to leave the club, with West Ham and Everton interested.

“It is to be honest with you,” said the Gunners striker. “But because there is nothing (confirmed) yet I am here for pre-season. I wanted to travel.

“Some people asked me if I was going to travel or not, I said of course I’m an Arsenal player.

“I just want to prepare well for the season and we’ll see later. One thing is for sure is I really enjoyed my five years at Arsenal.

“I had an amazing welcome from the fans and the club – it’s been five amazing years and I won’t forget it, no matter what happens.

“I’m still an Arsenal player for the moment, so I try to be a professional.

“No matter what happens I will do my job on the pitch and will try to prepare well for the season. That’s what is important for me.”
