Chelsea new striker Olivier Giroud has revealed he is looking forward to Chelsea’s Champions League game against Barcelona later this month.

The Blues face a two-legged last-16 tie with Spanish giants Barcelona, with the first game in London on February 20.

Giroud, who scored three goals in six games during Arsenal’s Europa League campaign this season, is eligible to play for Chelsea in the Champions League.

Giroud told Chelsea TV: “The Champions League is massive for a football player. There is nothing above it when you’re playing for a club.

“There will be two nice games against Barcelona. We know their qualities and I think everybody will need to be 100 per cent to go through.

“It will be very exciting and I’m looking forward to it.”
