Former Arsenal man claims Chelsea are the “perfect club” for him after winter move

Olivier Giroud believes Chelsea are the perfect club for him to save his career after becoming stagnant at Arsenal.

The French man joined the Blues last month after Arsenal completed the £56 million signing of Gabonese star Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.

He had struggled for game time all season and the arrival of the former Borussia Dortmund man meant that he would have fallen further behind the pecking order, so he decided to move on.

He joined the Blues for £18 million, and after providing an assist for Eden Hazard on his first start for the Blues, he told Mirror Sport why he had to move from the Emirates to Stamford Bridge.

‘ it’s been a while since I played regularly and that’s why I needed to move. I needed a new challenge and Chelsea was the perfect club for me’ claimed the Frenchman.

Giroud was reportedly advised to make the move by his French national team boss as he looks to play his way into the French side that would compete at this summer’s World Cup in Russia.

Giroud would also be eligible to play for the Blues in the Champions League knockout round after he was named in the Blues updated squad for the competition.
