Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has been recently linked with a move to Olympique Marseille, who also failed to land Mario Balotelli from OGC Nice in the summer transfer market window.

The Frenchman came off the bench in Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Bournemouth last time out as he provided an assist for teammate Pedro Rodriguez in the second half.

Also Maurizio Sarri has praised the former Arsenal star despite he has not been given many chances with the Blues so far. And Giroud told French outlet Telefoot: “I still have one year of contract, plus possibly another year.┬áThe board of the club have been positive in terms of giving me it.

“I do not know yet, we’ll see how things are in April or May, but I won’t exclude any possibility. We’ll see.”
