Benzema has been linked with the Gunners, himself.
Giroud has been excellent for Arsenal this season and kept Benzema out of the team in France's last game, when they won 4-2 against Belarus in Gomel on September 10.
"He's a good striker and he's had some games," Benzema said. "It's good for him, his club and Les Bleus. We need it to continue. I'm not in a Giroud-Benzema duel. I don't look at things like that.
"We are a squad, there is no number one, two or three. Whether it's me or someone else, when a player is on the pitch they have to show that they can help the team to win."
