Chelsea signed Olivier Giroud from their London rivals Arsenal in January 2018 and the striker signed a one-and-a-half year contract with an option to further extend it by a year.

Antonio Conte was the manager when he arrived at Stamford Bridge and the Italian was replaced by Maurizio Sarri before the start of the season.

The 31-year-old won the World Cup with France in July and therefore, was not part of the former Napoli manager’s full pre-season preparation.

The Blues coach has selected Alvaro Morata ahead of Giroud and the frontman is yet to start in the Premier League this season, playing 70 minutes in the league across three matches. The former Gunner has seen his first team starts being limited since signing for the west London club.

During an interview with Telefoot, Giroud explained when he will take a decision on his future, when asked whether he would be extending his stay at Chelsea.

“I still have one year of contract, plus possibly another year. The management of the club was rather favourable to give it to me. I do not know yet, we will do the accounts in April-May, but I do not exclude any possibility. We’ll see,” Giroud explained.
