Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud admits that he will consider a loan deal when the transfer window opens in January.

Olivier Giroud has admitted that he will reassess his Arsenal future when the transfer window opens in January.

The Frenchman has not started a Premier League game yet this season, but has scored four goals after coming off the bench in 13 fixtures.

The 31-year-old salvaged a point for the Gunners on Sunday as his 88th-minute goal secured a 1-1 draw with Southampton at St Mary's.

In the summer, the striker reportedly turned down a switch to Everton, but with the winter window on the horizon, West Ham United and Crystal Palace are believed to be circling.

"I'll ask myself the question again in January - that's for sure," Giroud told L'Equipe. "Loan could be best solution, but I don't know if Arsenal would want that."

After Sunday's match, manager Arsene Wenger insisted that he will not allow Giroud to leave the Emirates.
