But Olivier Giroud is among one of those names that would make an amicable exit. Certainly, the cause of the transfer is completely a regular playtime through which he will secure a safe spot for the France squad. One of the strongest teams that are no less depth on any of the positions. In order to get a place in Euro 2020 and get considered by the French coach. Giroud must play regular football.
It seems that the French striker is in the middle of absolutely nowhere. Even though he has set and created records that would never be overlooked.

Even though Chelsea is all prepared by all means to make the striker leave in January as they’ve done in past. The long-term servants like Cesc Fabregas, Branislav Ivanovic, and Petr Cech have all left the club after making their own choice of transfer. Moreover, the decision will only be taken after Chelsea is get the assurance of no injury hitting the club at the end of the year.
Giroud has enjoyed his international career so far. On contrary, his domestic career has always been quite low. Three years ago he was exactly in the same situation at Arsenal. When Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazatte joined the squad.
Olivier Giroud gave his word on his current Chelsea situation. He said while being on international duty that he is a lot more than just worried. As he can see how his game time has reduced steeply at Chelsea. Either it should change or a decision is made.
