Oliver Giroud reveals main reason why he left Arsenal for Chelsea

Olivier Giroud has revealed why he still relishes his transfer from Arsenal to Chelsea, according to reports.

Giroud switched Arsenal for Chelsea in the January of 2018 and he has become one of their best players ever since. He was often criticised at Arsenal as he never scored more than 16-league goals in a season. Wenger sanctioned his sale after the club agreed to sign Aubameyang.

Under Maurizio Sarri, Giroud is second choice in the League but he led the Blues’ to Europa League conquest, ending the competition as top scorer. Meanwhile, Arsenal ended the season out of top four places and they will not be playing in the Champions League like the Blues next season.

The 32-year-old striker penned a new contract with Chelsea only recently and he has continued to lay bare his delight at joining the Blues.

According to the club’s official website the French man has not iota of regret over his move to Stamford Bridge.

“It was an improvement going from Arsenal to Chelsea and I knew I would have the opportunity to win some more trophies. To win this Europa League one year after winning the World Cup is great for me.”

“I’m a Blue, a proper Blue. It’s a new chapter of my career and it was very special to score. I am so proud of this team.”

Chelsea are shopping for players in the transfer window, they are also keen on adding a striker to their otherwise strong squad.
