Olivier Giroud Would Take Arsenal Offer ... But Not Newcastle's

Montpellier owner Louis Nicollin has said Newcastle are "too small" for Olivier Giroud but would not rule out a switch to Arsenal - if the price is right.

Giroud, who has scored 13 times this season, is said to be a target for Newcastle.

Louis Nicollin: "Newcastle? They are too small for him.

"Arsenal? You would have to see if Arsene Wenger is interested but, as before, there is Van Persie.

"And at 10million euros? No. Given that he still has more than two years of contract, it will cost more.

"He has a contract until 2014, [so] 50 or 60million euros at least."
