Arsene Wenger recently insisted that Olivier Giroud would not be allowed to leave Arsenal in the January transfer window.
However, Michael Manuello, who represents Giroud, has admitted that the 31-year-old would be open to offers in the winter window as he looks to secure first-team action ahead of next summer’s World Cup.
“It can make things complicated,” Manuello 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.
“It will be outside France if there is one (a 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 Arsene to reconsider what has been said.”
