Olivier Giroud
Olivier Giroud plans Chelsea exit in the winter window

With the new signing Timo Werner from RB Leipzig in the summer, the playing time for Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has been drastically diminished, something that he is now considering a move in the January window.

According to football.london, Giroud will try to make a move away from Chelsea during the winter window, rather than make a contract with Inter Milan, who is interested in France at international level.

Giroud has yet to start a Premier League game on its side this season, limited to only 33 minutes of top-flight action, and the only forward goal of the campaign came in 6-0 Barnsley thrashing in the EFL Cup.

The 34-year-old is also finding it difficult to displace Tammy Abraham from the first XI, with Lampard now dropping him down to the third-choice striker.

Despite his lack of game time, Giroud still retains the trust of France manager Didier Deschamps and has been included in the national squad for November’s fixtures.
