Giroud claims Bayern interest

Montpellier striker Olivier Giroud has claimed his representatives have held talks with Bayern Munich.

Giroud, 25, has been linked with a summer move to the likes of Bayern and Arsenal after enjoying an impressive season in Ligue 1, scoring 21 goals in 34 appearances.

And the France international has indicated a deal with Bayern could be in the offing, telling Sport Bild magazine: "Bayern Munich are more in the focus than any other club due to the positive experience of French players there.

"I have not yet spoken to them directly, but my agent has. Every player says how friendly they have been welcomed there and how happy they were there.''

None more so than Franck Ribery, who has given Giroud an insight into life in Munich and Germany. "I have spoken to Ribery a bit about the Bundesliga," the forward added.

"We spoke about the fantastic fans, the full stadiums and the great life in Germany, and of course how the Bundesliga is particularly appealing to a striker since they play attacking football there."
