Arsenal could be forced to cool their interest in Montpellier striker Olivier Giroud after the French club slapped a £16million price tag on their star asset.

Arsene Wenger has been courting the 25-year-old for a number of months, and was considering a firm approach at the end of the season.

Giroud is known to be keen on a move to the Barclays Premier League in the summer, but Montpellier’s hefty asking price is likely to put off Wenger.

The striker has bagged 28 goals in 59 league games for Montpellier and has been one of the top performers in Ligue 1 this term.

Giroud has two years to run on his current deal.
