Olivier Giroud leaning towards signing new terms with Chelsea

Olivier Giroud is now leaning towards signing new terms with Chelsea.

With Tammy Abraham not appearing to be in manager Thomas Tuchel's picture and Timo Werner's woeful run in front of goal, veteran striker Olivier Giroud has moved back into the frame.

The 34-year-old has appeared to be on his way out of Chelsea for some time but he agreed a contract extension last May until the end of this season. When called upon the French striker seems to deliver and he could reportedly put pen to paper on a new deal.

"If you see him on a daily basis, you can't be surprised. His body is in shape, his physicality is top level. He enjoys every day being a professional soccer player. He trains like a 24-year-old," he said.

"He is the guy who has a good mix of being serious and enjoying training.

"He is always positive and a big factor for the group. When he starts or comes off the bench, he has all the qualities."
