France international Olivier Giroud sealed his transfer to Chelsea from Arsenal on deadline day. The 31-year-old has now revealed his reason for joining Chelsea.

“The most important thing was talking with the coach, Antonio Conte. I felt like he really wanted me and he really wanted to work with me,” Giroud told Chelsea’s official website.

“I wanted to sign for Chelsea and nowhere else. I really wanted to play more. I wanted to stay in the Premier League, and Chelsea for me is perfect because I can even stay in London.

“But the first reason is the sporting challenge. That has always been my first priority. Everything is here for me to be happy.”
