Giroud told reporters in France: "In my opinion, it is important that the club sign another striker but it takes time, especially if it is a big-name player.
"I know what my job is and what I'm capable of. I just focus on myself and my ability. The manager is counting on me so I'm not thinking about [potential new arrivals] too much."
