Arsenal striker Giroud: Welbeck and I are world class

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud admits he gets fed-up with speculation linking the Gunners with other forwards.

Giroud says the transfer rumours "sting".

"When talking about a guy to play in your place, you take it personally because it's your position. I hear: 'They have Giroud and Welbeck, but need a world class striker'. Like, we're not world class strikers," he told L'Equipe.

"No (it doesn't bother me), but it stings.

"It gives me extra motivation."
