Chelsea expected to hand in-form Giroud new contract

Chelsea expected to hand out a new contract to Giroud in January.

Olivier Giroud is probably the only striker in the Blues squad who seems to have the desire and hunger in front of the goal.

The Frenchman went down below the pecking order but fought his way back to the first team scoring seven goals in the last few matches.

His future at Stamford Bridge still remains very uncertain with exit rumours building again heading into 2021.

Former Blues keeper Robert Green believes that Chelsea might hand him a new contract than sanction a sale.

“As long as he wants to be there he should be there,” former Blues goalkeeper Green told Stadium Astro.

“It’s one that they are finding very hard to replace. I think Tammy [Abraham] is still a work in progress.

“He [Giroud] is still scoring goals and he’s still massively motivated. I was with him last season and speaking to him then and he was talking about playing in the Euros, playing for France, getting that trophy that he hasn’t got so far and getting into the top ranking of goalscoring for France as well.

“The hunger and the drive is still there. He wants to do it and I can’t see Chelsea going out there and finding a replacement that, if Tammy is playing, is willing to help out and support and when stepping up is providing such a big role.

“I think it’s a massive transfer window in January, I think there will be suitors and people will come in for him and it’s in Chelsea’s interests to keep him there.

“That might include giving him a new contract.”
