Montpellier striker Olivier Giroud admits he's chasing a move to England.

Giroud is attracting interest from the likes of Newcastle United, Sunderland and Blackburn Rovers.

"Being linked with the France national team is very flattering and it confirms that I am playing well," Giroud told France Football. "I have never received a call, though, so I have no reason to feel under pressure. It is up to me to prove that I am good enough.

"I have set myself the targets of becoming an international player and playing one day in England. If I work hard, I think my efforts will be rewarded."
