Chelsea's madcap month of trying to sign any striker who's name they pull out of a hat looks set to continue, despite reports that a deal has been struck to bring Roma frontman Edin Dzeko to Stamford Bridge.
Do you think Giroud would be a good signing for Chelsea?
Asked if Giroud has asked for a move, Wenger replied: 'No.
But a deal for the Bosnian hitman is proving to be a hard task with the Roma striker holding out for better personal terms.
Asked about Chelsea's interest in Giroud, Wenger responded: 'I want Olivier to stay. As long as I have the player I will play him, because he has always shown me commitment, seriousness and professionalism.
Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte admitted he had endured sleepless nights during this campaign, searching for answers to his team's problems.
The England worldwide secured a move to Stamford Bridge earlier this month for a fee of £15m, joining from fellow Premier League club Everton.
A partnership between the club and the manager which was looking flawless in the first season is now on the verge of a sad end.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is reportedly growing increasingly frustrated by Antonio Conte's transfer claims and is ready to pull the plug at the end of the season. Lampard is also anxious about the future of Eden Hazard.
Hazard and Courtois are in the last 18 months of their current deals and are yet to commit their long-term futures to the west London club. "But, at the same time, when you are sure about your work and that you are doing everything to improve this club - I am very relaxed and I don't have this type of worry".
