Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has proven to be a beast in the air, and the 34-year-old may just be one of the best strikers the Premier League has ever seen.

No player in the Premier League has scored more headers (32) than Olivier Giroud since he made his debut in 2012.

The 34-year-old scored his latest header in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw against Aston Villa on Monday to prove that he’s always an aerial threat.

Giroud has now scored 89 goals and set up 32 strikes in 247 PL appearances for both Arsenal and Chelsea over the years.

Meanwhile, reports claim that Giroud is subject of interest from many clubs as we approach the January transfer window, with Atletico Madrid reported as one of the clubs most keen to sign the striker.
