Looks like Olivier Giroud was quite happy with the offer he got from Lazio.
Chelsea have had Giroud for a long time now, but it’s not necessary that he will stay on with the Blues. In January, he had to really fight for some game time, as Lampard employed the use of youngster Tammy Abraham in most of the first half of the season’s games.
That was rather unfair and talks of Giroud leaving Chelsea flared up at the start of the year. But recently, Giroud has returned to the pitch, since Tammy Abraham has been out with any injury for a while. He has proved himself and the Blues clearly don’t want to let go of the French striker now.
The striker’s most likely move was rumoured to be to Inter Milan. However, Italian club Lazio had their eyes set on Olivier Giroud – are still interested, and very likely to return with a potential bid this summer.
Giroud’s deal with Chelsea will end this summer, so no wonder Lazio has started prepping for their offer already.
“Yes, of course,” he answered when asked whether he would consider signing an extension.
“And after I think I have two, three nice seasons in front of me. It’s not the time to talk about contracts. But one more time I will take a decision when it comes.”
