Tony Cascarino tells Frank Lampard to keep Olivier Giroud beyond this season.
The French striker will be out of contract this summer and a possible move away from Stamford Bridge is advancing.
His agent recently claimed that Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been unfair to him due to limited game-time this season.
Giroud’s agent Michael Manuello told FootMercato told: “Effectively, since the start of September, things have changed but what has not changed is his capacity to play matches for France, contrary to what was said by certain others.
“There have been €150m worth of players bought. But at the same time you’d be blind not to see that Frank Lampard has decided to put Tammy Abraham ahead of him.
“It is not frankly fair when you look at what Olivier did at the end of the season. But he (Lampard) has the right, it is his choice.
“So effectively if things continue like this, in December we will find ourselves where we were in December 2019.
“Things have happened in the last five months. We cannot just look at the last two months and be forgetful about the three years that came before it.
“But we have to be honest and, if this continues, we will have to, first and foremost for him, experience other emotions.”
And former Blues striker Tony Cascarino told Lampard to offer a new contract to the Frenchman who recently impressed against Rennes in the Champions League fixture by scoring the winning goal.
“I like Olivier Giroud and I think Frank Lampard said it, he trusts him,” he told talkSPORT.
“Lampard is totally happy with him. I’d love him to stay at the football club. He’s the second-highest goalscorer for France.
“He’s been an absolutely great asset for club and country. So Frank has told him what he feels and how he needs him.”
