Atletico Madrid have added Olivier Giroud to their ever-growing list of striker targets.

The Spanish title contenders are sifting through various names with Diego Costa set to join Chelsea in the summer.

Giroud, 27, has endured a troubled couple of months off the pitch but insists he wants to stay at Arsenal despite interest from abroad.

Equally, Arsenal have been looking at strikers themselves with Mario Mandzukic at Bayern Munich and Real Madrid's Karim Benzema among those discussed by scouts as well as Julian Draxler at Schalke.

Atletico have watched Tottenham's Roberto Soldado, QPR's Loic Remy and have an interest in Fernando Torres.

They know they may be able to attract bigger names should their season end with a flourish and Giroud is in their thinking.
