Chelsea centre-forward Olivier Giroud reportedly wants to extend his contract at Stamford Bridge.
The 32-year-old’s current deal with the Blues is due to expire at the end of the season, having joined for £18million (BBC) in January 2018.
According to the Sun, the France international is hoping that Chelsea decide to trigger a one-year extension in his contract.
It is understood that the World Cup winner is focused on trying to earn a contract extension, but clubs in China and France are showing an interest in a potential swoop.
Giroud has not been a regular starter under Maurizio Sarri this season and has been the second or third-choice striker at times.
But the left-footed ace has made 29 games across all competitions and left his mark on the Europa League so far.
The target man now has five goals in just six Europa League games and will hope to guide the club towards a trophy.
Giroud is stuck behind January loan signing Gonzalo Higuain in the pecking order, but is likely to keep getting some chances considering Chelsea are still in four competitions.
He is a strong option to have around the squad and it could make sense to keep him on another year if he’s happy with his role at the club.
