Giroud to consider Chelsea future in January

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud says he will consider his future at the Stamford Bridge in January. 

Giroud has only made a single appearance in the Premier League this season with boss Frank Lampard preferring summer signing Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham. The Frenchman has ruled out a return to French football but has stated he is looking to move to the United States in the future. 

"I’ve been close to moving to Serie A," Giroud told RMC Sport.

"They appreciated experienced players there, but the transfer didn’t materialize. In the future, we will see what happens. I will decide by evaluating the opportunities I will have. I’m not ruling out anything, but for now, I don’t see me returning to Ligue 1."

"I’d like to play at the highest level in Europe for another two or three years, then maybe I’ll go to the United States."

The Frenchman signed for Chelsea in January 2018 from rivals Arsenal on an initial 18-month deal before he extended his stay by another year in May 2020.
