Olivier Giroud

It is very much unlikely that Olivier Giroud will stay at Stamford Bridge after the end of this January transfer window. Giroud is not getting enough game-time for the Blues after the arrival of the new manager of Chelsea, Frank Lampard. The star centre forward of the French National side has finally spoken in front of the media about the whole situation.

According to Olivier Giroud, it will be extremely difficult for him to stay at Chelsea after January as he has few offers already from other clubs. Now after the comments of the player, it will be very interesting to watch the stance of the club management of the Blues.

The reports are suggesting that the club management of the Blues might use Olivier Giroud as a part of the deal to bring new players in this January transfer window. The Premier League clubs like West Ham United have already shown their interest to bring in the 33-year-old centre forward in this January transfer window. However, Chelsea would like to sell him to Crystal Palace and bring in Wilfried Zaha as a part of the deal. In this way, the transfer fees of the young winger can be reduced a bit.

On the other hand, Rangers have also placed an offer to bring in Olivier Giroud in the January transfer window. There are some offers for Olivier Giroud from the clubs of Italy and France too. The former boss of Chelsea, Maurizio Sarri wants Olivier Giroud at Juventus. Inter Milan are also interested in the 33-year-old centre forward.

Chelsea is interested to bring in the star centre forward from Lyon, Moussa Dembele in the next transfer window. They would like to add Olivier Giroud as part of the deal. So, it is very much certain that Olivier Giroud is going to leave Stamford Bridge after the end of this season.

The European Championship is going to take place in 2020. The head coach of France National side, Didier Deschamps would certainly wish that Olivier Giroud gets enough game time ahead of this tournament. Giroud is an integral part of the squad of France National side. So, Deschamps was not also not happy with the less game time of the centre forward. Deschamps expressed his concern in front of the media too addressing Frank Lampard. However, the situation did not improve after that also.

Giroud started in the game against West Ham United in the Premier League. However, Chelsea was beaten by their local rival in that match. After that match, Giroud was never a part of the starting lineup of the Blues even in the busy congested festive period. Frank Lampard has suggested that the form of Tammy Abraham has been the reason for the exclusion of Giroud from the starting lineup. It is very much clear that Olivier Giroud does not suit the system of Frank Lampard. So, the move of the player to another club will be good for both the parties.
