An agent to one of Arsenal’s stars has admitted his client is open to offers in the January transfer window.

There have been reports suggesting that French striker Olivier Giroud wants to leave the Emirates club, while he has been linked with the likes of Everton, Marseille and West Ham United.

A few weeks ago Gunners manager Arsene Wenger insisted Giroud will not be allowed to leave in the next window, but the player’s agent Michael Manuello reckons his client will consider his future.

“It can make things complicated,” he told Foot Mercato.

“But conflict, that kind of thing, is not in Olivier’s nature, nor in mine. We always work in harmony. It is normal for Arsene to take this position publicly and we do not have to comment on it.

”Now, depending on the offers which are made, we will sit around a table and talk. The most important thing is to know what is going to be offered or not this winter to find a better game project. Now, again, this project has to present itself.”

Manuello was asked if a return to Ligue 1 would be on the cards for the France international.

“It will be outside France if there is one (transfer). There will be approaches. All clubs looking for an attacker are likely to come. We have to be careful, and if there is something obvious, we will try to convince Arsène to reconsider what has been said,” he added.
