Giroud has warning for Chelsea signing Werner: I'm NOT afraid

Olivier Giroud insists he's not afraid of Timo Werner's imminent arrival at Chelsea.

Giroud was asked about the signing of the RB Leipzig striker after scoring in victory at Aston Villa yesterday.

He told Canal+: "Afraid of Werner coming? No, I'm not used to being afraid.

"But in any case it is a very good signature for the club. It is an additional motivation as I said before, for all attackers because the competition brings a motivation to excel and not to stay in your comfort zone.

"It is positive for the club, for the attackers and I hope he will flourish with us."
