Despite his age, the World Cup victor would still be a fine signing for either Spurs, West Ham or the Eagles.

His representative, Michael Manuello, admits as much, with the France global frontman finding himself back in an all too familiar situation after committing to a one-year contract extension.

"Since the beginning of the season, Chelsea have played eight matches, scored 22 goals and taken 15 points".

Giroud's agent is of the view that his client is being treated unfairly by Lampard with reduced first team action, despite the 34-year-old's goalscoring exploits towards the end of last season. "Chelsea have spent up to 150 million euros on a player, but at the same time, you have to be blind not to see that Lampard has preferred to put Tammy Abraham ahead of him", he said to "AS". But at the same time you'd be blind not to see that Frank Lampard has chose to put Tammy Abraham ahead of him.

"It is not necessarily fair compared to what Olivier did at the end of the season, but he has the right, it is his choice".

With six goals and three assists in nine Premier League games against the Irons, it could be worth signing him just to ensure he can't score against the club anymore.

'So if things continue like this, in December we'll find ourselves where we were in December 2019.

However, under Didier Deschamps, the French striker has scored five goals in his last eight worldwide outings. We can not just look at the last two months and be forgetful about the three years that came before it.

"But we have to be honest and it is true that if this continues, he may want to live other emotions".

Eighth in the all-time Premier League list of aerial battles won by strikers, Giroud is also adept at holding the ball up and bringing teammates into play, as well as linking up with wingers, attributes which Moyes likes to see in his forwards.
