The future of Olivier Giroud at Arsenal has been questioned as Sami Mokbel of the Daily Mail reported that the striker met with a leading agent in Hampstead, London.
The France international was pictured with Muzzi Ozcan at a restaurant in the article, prompting Mokbel to question whether the meeting was linked to a potential move.
According to the report, Giroud's agent Mickael Manuello, who was not at the meeting, claims the pair were there for "commercial purposes."
Meanwhile, Nicklas Bendtner has been fined £104,000 by the club after allegations of an altercation with a Copenhagen taxi driver during the week, reports Mark Irwin of The Sun (subscription required).
Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is quoted as saying:
I honestly don’t know what happened in Copenhagen because I haven’t spoken to him yet.
The only thing for sure is that he had no right to be in Copenhagen.
Nobody gave him any permission to go to Denmark and he will be fined for that.
