The agent of the Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud, has made it clear that if some good offers come in for his client during the January transfer window then they will sit down and discuss with Wenger about the options available to the French International striker, despite Wenger’s announcement that Giroud will not be sold next month.
Michael Manuello told Foot Mercato: “It can make things complicated (Wenger’s firm stance). But the clash, that kind of thing is not in Olivier’s nature, nor in mine. We always work in harmony.
“It is normal for Arsene to emit this position publicly. This is completely normal. We do not have to comment on it elsewhere.
“Now, depending on how the offers arrive, we will sit around a table and discuss.
“The most important thing is to know what will be offered or not this winter and to find a better playing project.”
Manuello is also convinced that Giroud will be receiving many offers, and then it will be up to him and the player to get Le Prof to change his mind. He continued: “There will be approaches. All clubs looking for an attacker are likely to come. We have to be careful and if there is something obvious, we will try to convince Arsène to go back on what was said.”
Giroud has already said that he thinks about the World Cup all the time, and what he can do to ensure that he gets a place in the team, and if the right offer comes along he will definitely take it seriously, but will Wenger relent? I doubt it!
