Everton boost as agent tells Marseille to forget about Giroud

The agent of Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has ruled out a return to France next month.

Giroud has declared he's keen on a loan move next month, with Olympique Marseille and Everton both keen.

Michael Manuello told Foot Mercato: "Olivier will not come back to France. Unless there is a change in his state of mind, to date the intention is not to return to France.

"There has been no new approach from Marseille. I had no information that Marseille was trying to contact us.

"There will be approaches. All clubs looking for an attacker are likely to come. We must be careful and if there is something obvious that will appear, we will try to convince Arsène to return to what has been said."
