That' the admission of Marseille chief Jose Anigo, who has revealed they've been turned down by the prolific forward.
Giroud is also a target for Arsenal and Tottenham as Anigo confirmed: "He's a player who wants to play in the Champions League, and saw that this is not our case, so he will not come.
"We talked, we tried to learn about his demands, and I think he's someone who wants to take a step up. So he will stay with Montpellier to compete in the Champion's League, or he will leave to another club. But again, to play C1. This is the best showcase for his talent."
