Rene Girard can't see the striker trying to force a move away, despite the interest of Lyon and Marseille.
He said: "But there is also the salary. It would take a club well placed, and where is Marseille? Was it a financial problem that prevented OM from extending (Bafetimbi) Gomis?
"I think people's ambitions are also important. Even though Arsenal was not easy, he was always there, Arsène (Wenger) trusted him anyway and he scored his goals. In any case, he is a boy who has always had a suitable reflection. He never bolted."
