Giroud to leave Chelsea this summer?
Football Transfer Centre

Olivier Giroud could leave Chelsea during the summer transfer window in the quest for regular first-team football.

The Frenchman has been with the Blues since January 2018 and he has proved a solid signing with 38 goals from 109 appearances.

Most of those appearances have come off the bench but that appears unlikely to change under new manager Thomas Tuchel.

His Blues contract is due to expire at the end of June and Tuttosport claims that he may pursue a fresh challenge in a new league.

Giroud has been a game changer off the bench for the Blues but Tuchel is said to to be eyeing a marquee striker this summer.

In that case, Giroud would drop further down the selection order with Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham already preferred ahead of him.

The Blues have their sights on landing Erling Braut Haaland from Borussia Dortmund and they are prepared to pay a club-record fee.

Meanwhile, Giroud could head to the Serie A with interest from the likes of Juventus, Inter Milan, Napoli and Lazio.
