Striker Giroud opens up and officially tells Chelsea that he ‘is happy here’
Olivier Giroud has opened up and admitted that he is happy at Chelsea, with a possible deal on the horizon
There has been a lot of transfer speculation in the media over the past few weeks about the imminent departure of striker Giroud, who has become very unhappy in the side this season after falling behind Tammy Abraham in the pecking order.
Abraham has proved himself to be a top Premier League striker, leading the clubs scoring charts in the Premier League this season, and rather than sit on the bench on a weekly basis, Giroud has shown a desire to depart the club for pastures new.
But the 33-year-old French striker has started ‘ past five games – and has scored twice in that time – his latest goal came in Sunday’s 4-0 rout of Everton, a clinical back-post finish at a corner, and after the game he has indicated that he would like to stay at the club
“I’ve been waiting for my chance and the gaffer has given me the opportunity to show my desire and be competitive,” Giroud told SKY SPORTS: “I’m determined to do my best to help the team. It’s been five games and I’ve really enjoyed it. I feel really good and I want to bring something more to help us win games.”
When asked if he saw his long-term future HERE, Giroud said: “I don’t know. It’s too early to say but I’m happy here.”
Giroud is a good striker that has been unable to be that prolific striker that many clubs need, so even though he wants to stay at the club, there is no doubt that WE will look to sign a new striker in the summer, meaning that there will be no need to keep the Frenchman.
