Giroud: French influence of Henry, Vieira convinced me about Arsenal
"When I was little boy, I wanted to play in the Premier League. My heart has always looked for Arsenal.
"I saw they had [Thierry] Henry, there were also [Patrick] Vieira and [Robert] Pires. A true French touch.
"I have always loved the philosophy of their game and the state of mind of this club. The French were very successful there and the quality of life in London is exceptional."
