Olivier Giroud has confirmed that he is close to securing an extension of his Arsenal contract.

The France international’s deal expires in 18 months, but he has re-established his place as a crucial player for the Gunners following a superb run of form.

Giroud has scored four goals and assisted two in his last four appearances, including a spectacular scorpion kick against Crystal Palace, an injury-time equaliser at Bournemouth and a second-half winner against Preston North End in the FA Cup.

And the 30-year-old looks set to be rewarded for his efforts with a new deal.

“We are about to reach an agreement for an extension [to my contract],” he told Telefoot.

“It was also a gesture of confidence; I want to continue the adventure here in this family of Arsenal. I feel good here.

“When I spoke to the coach [Arsene Wenger], he always told me that I was an important player.

“I know what I am capable of. I just needed to be patient, to work in training and wait for my hour to come.”
