Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists he's counting on Olivier Giroud this season.

The Frenchman has been linked with PSG and struck in their 2-2 draw at Everton on Saturday.

"He scored 16 [in the Premier League last year] and he's very convincing," said Wenger. "You never have to set any limitations for any player. For me, he's improving every year and don't rule it out that he scores 25.

"We have Sanogo who will be an important asset, we have Giroud, we have Lukas Podolski, we have Joel Campbell who can play centre forward. We have Alexis and Walcott coming back. Let's not forget that.

"All of our opponents look for strikers as well and nobody finds a world-class striker available who is better than the strikers you have."
