Montpellier striker Olivier Giroud has cooled talk of a move to England.

Arsenal and Tottenham are chasing the France international, who is now warming to a move to Germany.

"I personally had no direct talks with Bayern Munich, but my agent has," the striker, who has scored 21 goals this season for the surprise Ligue 1 leaders, revealed in Bild.

He added: "Bayern Munich's French players [Bixente Lizarazu and Willy Sagnol] talk of the positive experiences they had in Munich. All players have always told how friendly they were received, how happy they were there and how they were treated."
