Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is eyeing a January move away from Stamford Bridge as he looks to secure a place in the France squad for Euro 2020.
The 33-year-old has played a little over three matches worth of football this season, with his only goal this campaign coming against Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup.
Tammy Abraham is leading the line under Frank Lampard, with Michy Batshuayi preferred as first reserve – and the former Arsenal forward does not see himself in Chelsea blue for much longer.
“It will be difficult to stay at Chelsea,” he told Le Dauphine Libere.
“I’m going to have a chat with the coach. Chances are, there will be a change because I don’t have enough time to express myself on the pitch.
“For the moment, I am a Chelsea player. I still have some games to play here before the transfer window opens [on January 1].
“Then we will sit around a table and find the best decision for me. France is one of the possible solutions.”
Giroud is just three games short of a century of international caps for France, and he has 39 goals to show for his 97 games to date. (Reuters)
