Olivier Giroud is eyeing a January move away from Chelsea as he looks to secure a place in the France squad for Euro 2020.
Giroud, 33, has played a little over three matches worth of football this season, with his only goal this campaign coming against Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup.
Tammy Abraham is leading the line under Frank Lampard, with Michy Batshuayi preferred as first reserve – and the former Arsenal forward does not see himself in Chelsea blue for much longer.
Giroud is just three games short of a century of international caps for France, and he has 39 goals to show for his 97 games to date.
At club level, his goal return has dropped since joining Chelsea in the summer of 2018 and finding himself spending more time on the bench than on the pitch.
Despite this, he has still featured regularly for Didier Deschamps’ World Cup-winning France side – but his lack of playing time has left him open to criticism.
