Hopes of regaining his starting role under Frank Lampard has become harder for Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud following the arrival of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig.
Despite being Chelsea’s third choice striker behind Werner and Tammy Abraham, Giroud has vowed to stay and fight for his place at Chelsea but accepts he may need to assess his playing time during the January transfer window.
“I’ve written a book called ‘Always Believe It’ so I’m not going to go anywhere without a fight,” Giroud said.
“There is competition but I will fight and we saw the rewards of that at the end of last season.
“I am convinced that I have a role to play at Chelsea. We will see in January.”
