The pressure to leave Chelsea in January 2020 is the famous French striker, Olivier Giroud. The 33-year-old player rarely gets a chance to appear, so he is said to be planning to leave the transfer market later. Moreover, next year there is a Euro Cup event with the French National Team.
For information, this former Arsenal player has only played seven times in all competitions this season. Of these opportunities, Giroud only scored one goal. Aside from the minimal playing quota, the fact is that the player’s contract at Stamford Bridge will also end soon next summer. Naturally, if the future of Giroud then becomes a conversation.
On the one hand, Giroud is said to have settled in leaving the London club, he felt he could no longer compete with the club’s two young strikers, Mitchy Batshuayi and Tammy Abraham, who appeared sharper this season. Some clubs have started to be associated with the player, such as Atletico Madrid, Crystal Palace and Inter Milan.
Speculation about his future is becoming increasingly common, but coach Frank Lampard himself admitted that he had not talked to the player at all. Likewise, Pedro Rodriguez and other players. New talks will be held when the winter transfer window arrives in January 2020.
“No (talking to Giroud), all the players who are here I will not talk about January until we arrive in January. Everyone, “Lampard was quoted as saying by Tribal Football.
Nevertheless, Lampard who is a Chelsea legend personally hopes that Giroud will stay at Stamford Bridge. He was impressed with the professionalism of the French player in the training session.
“I am happy if he (Giroud) survives, because with every player in the squad I want them to be here for Chelsea, have the right professionalism and the right desire to be here. He has shown me during training every day this season. That’s what makes me happy. “He said.
Previously, the French national team coach, Didier Deschamps had suggested that Giroud leave Chelsea, if you want to play in the 2020 Euro Cup.
