Former Everton manager Ronald Koeman revealed Giroud was on the verge of a move to Goodison Park in the summer before deciding he wanted to stay in the capital, suggesting that Arsene Wenger saw the Frenchman's time at the Emirates as limited after the signing of Alexandre Lacazette.

But Giroud, who has scored 101 goals in 241 games since signing for Arsenal in 2012, has indicated he will stay put and says he is not now questioning his future.
