Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud has weighed in on the growing temptation for Premier League players to move to the Chinese Super League.
Reports have suggested fellow striker Diego Costa has been considering leaving the leaders Chelsea to move to a Chinese club - a transfer that would offer way in excess of his current wages.
Giroud understands why players are considering offers but he is adamant he would not contemplate any interest until he had won the Premier League title with Arsenal.
The French international said: "Honestly, from my point of view I will tell you that I can understand, but if you asked me if I want to go now I will tell you 'no.'
"The Premier League is my main target so after when I will win it one day, why not, you never know."
Giroud is in fine form at the moment, scoring in his last nine starts for Arsenal in all competitions.
While the 30-year-old said he enjoyed the competition for starting places, he holds an expectation that his goal-scoring form will contribute to a much more consistent place in Arsene Wenger's starting line-up.
"It's always nice to have a good competition between us and if I keep scoring, why not stay in the starting eleven?"
Giroud, speaking at an event to promote new Puma football boots, said he was happy to sign a new Arsenal contract and expressed his desire to "carry on the adventure'' and win further trophies with the club
