French international Giroud scored 25 goals last season as Montpellier won the Ligue 1 title, and it is thought the club would want a fee of around £13 million for him.
Arsenal appear favourites to sign him and make him a second attacking addition to their squad after completing a deal for German international Lukas Podolski earlier this month.
