Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has been told to leave Chelsea in January if he wants to be part of France squad for Euro 2020.

This is according to France head coach Didier Deschamps.

Giroud is behind Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi in pecking order at Chelsea under Frank Lampard.

“Giroud, like others, may have to move,” Deschamps said as quoted on Goal.

“His situation at Chelsea hasn’t changed in two months.

“It would be better for him, of course, to go to a club where he would get more playing time. If he can’t get it at Chelsea, the idea is to get it elsewhere.

“It’s his decision. I don’t know what offers he has, where it might be possible for him to get more playing time.

“We saw each other not so long ago. As with every player, he’s the one who decides. But keep in mind that it’s the daily life of players with their clubs that leads to France selection. He knows it. It’s up to him to decide the best solution for himself.”
