Arsenal boss Wenger on Giroud future: He has my respect...

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists he wants Olivier Giroud to stay.

Borussia Dortmund are leading the chase for Giroud while Everton, West Ham and Marseille are also keen as it appears he could go after Alexandre Lacazette's arrival.

Wenger said, "There's a lot of speculation but no matter how many times I say it, I have a huge respect for him, for the man he is and the way he loves our club.

"Even with the speculation he is focused and he does his job. I always said I want him to stay. I was always consistent in that and that's where we are at the moment."
