Nice sports chief Grimandi: I want Giroud; I signed him for Arsenal

New Nice sports chief Gilles Grimandi has confirmed he's keen to sign Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud.

The former Arsenal scout took charge at OGCN earlier this year.

He revealed: "Of course it's tempting. Olivier, I know him very well, it's me who brought him from Montpellier to Arsenal.

"He offers guarantees of efficiency, his profile we like. But Olivier is on another planet. To this day, he is inaccessible. After, he will choose his destination according to many things and it will not necessarily be dictated by the money.

"It all depends on where he puts his priority.
