Olivier Giroud eyes Chelsea exit

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is reportedly eyeing an exit from Stamford Bridge after struggling to secure regular first-time football. 

Giroud has lost his place to Timo Werner who signed for Chelsea in the summer, with the Frenchman limited to just 33 minutes of Premier League action this season. Earlier in the week, France boss Didier Deschamps warned the 34-year-old that he is risking losing his place in the national team if he fails to secure more game time at the club level. 

And now ESPN reports that Giroud, who was linked with an exit during the January transfer window is once again keen to leave the Blues in search of consistent first-team football. 

The former Arsenal man is under contract until the end of the season but his desire to secure a place in France’s squad for Euro 2020 could force the striker to move elsewhere to get the game time he needs.
