Olivier Giroud asked to stay at Chelsea despite exit rumours

Paul Merson told Giroud to stay put at Chelsea amid January exit rumours.

The Frenchman is struggling for game-time at Stamford Bridge and is third on the pecking order behind Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham.

There have been ongoing rumours that he might decide to leave Blues this January if he is forced to continue from the bench.

“He should stay at Chelsea because even if he’s not playing every week, he will still start for France at the Euros,” Merson wrote in his Daily Star column.

“Giroud might be considering his future but he’s going to get games for Chelsea this season. He’s not in a queue. It’s between him and Tammy Abraham really because Timo Werner is playing wide left most of the time now.

“And France know how important he is. He makes France better. And his goalscoring record for them is phenomenal.

“He should stay at Stamford Bridge.”

Giroud has scored six times in 10 games across all competition for Chelsea this season, that’s despite starting just two of those games, the 34-year-old making his impact off the bench for the most part.
