It has now been officially confirmed that 2018 World Cup winner will remain with Chelsea for next season ahead having signed a one year contract extension with the club.
The 32-year-old striker is said to be worth £13.50 million from the Transfer Market.
Speaking to the London club Official website, Olivier Giroud said: “I am very happy to sign a new contract.
“I really wanted to stay at least one more year – I have felt a part of the team, the family, since the beginning and hopefully there will be more trophies to come.”
Speaking about their new signing after securing the services of Giroud for one more season Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: “We are very pleased that Olivier will be a Chelsea player for another season.
“Since joining us 18 months ago, he has at times had to be patient and wait for opportunities, but has still been able to make a positive contribution to the team.
“Whether it is his unselfish link-up play or his 10 Europa League goals this season, he has been a crucial member of the squad and we hope he will be able to pick up a second Chelsea winners’ medal in Baku later this month to accompany last season’s FA Cup win.”
As a reward for his impressive performance this season, Olivier Giroud has been called up to the France for their international break along with other forward like; Florian Thauvin (Marseille), Thomas Lemar (Atletico Madrid), Antoine Greizmann (Atletico Madrid), Wissam Ben Yedder (Sevilla), Kingsley Coman (Bayern Munich) and lastly Ligue 1 player of the year Kylian Mbappe.
