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