Olivier Giroud: Arsenal to Chelsea?
News that Batshuayi is heading to BVB will lead most to assume that Chelsea will sign Olivier Giroud from Arsenal.
Giroud was brought on as second half sub for Arsenal in a 3-1 defeat to Swansea on Tuesday.
That’s likely to be the last time Giroud turns out in a Gunners shirt.
Amid rumours that his wife was determined to stay in London, Giroud seems to be on the verge of a move to Chelsea.
Chelsea could sign the 31-year-old French international for 20 million pounds, or less.
