Giroud has yet to start a Premier League game this season, but despite being linked to Juventus he intends to battle for his place at the Emirates Stadium for now.

However, Giroud -- whose contract is up in 2018 -- intends to battle for his place at the Emirates Stadium despite being linked with a move to Juventus.

"I have never entered into contact with Italian clubs," the 30-year-old's representative, Michael Manuello, said before the Basel game.

"Olivier feels really good at Arsenal. He's going to finish the season here. Nothing is possible in January for Olivier.

"He has no intention of moving during the winter transfer window."
