Chelsea have confirmed the signing of France international striker Olivier Giroud from Arsenal.
Giroud’s move concludes a merry-go-round of transfers that involved Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang moving to Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea’s out-of-favor striker Michy Batshuayi joining Dortmund as his replacement on loan. The 31-year-old joins Chelsea on an 18-month deal for a reported transfer fee in the region of £17m. A physical forward known for his ability in the air and finishing around the penalty area, Giroud leaves the Emirates after scoring 105 goals in 253 appearances for the Arsenal. Given Giroud's skill-set and rather efficient ratio of scoring goals, the capture of the Frenchman concludes Chelsea's search for a proven backup striker. Alvaro Morata remains Antonio Conte's first-choice but Giroud should see more playing time than former backup Batshuayi. Jan 31 - 1:12 PM
