According to former Chelsea goalkeeper Rob Green, Chelsea are finding it very hard to replace Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud.

Giroud has eight goals in just five starts across all competitions and was on the scoresheet again in Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat to Wolves on Tuesday night.

“As long as he wants to be there, he should be there I think,” Green told Stadium Astro.

“They’re finding him very hard to replace, I think Tammy is still a work in progress.

“He’s still scoring goals and he’s still motivated massively. I was with him last season and speaking to him then and he was talking about playing in the Euros playing for France, getting that trophy he hasn’t got so far, the trophy of the European Championships and getting into the top ranking of the goalscoring for France as well.

“So the hunger and the drive is still there. He wants to do it and I can’t see Chelsea going out there and finding a replacement either that if Tammy is playing is willing and able to support but when he’s stepping up is providing such a big role.

“So I think it’s a massive transfer window in January. I think there will be suitors, people will come in for him and I think it’s in Chelsea’s interests just to keep him there. That might include giving him a new contract.”
