The lack of game time in the Premier League left Giroud contemplating his future but it seems the former Arsenal man has had a change in heart.

According to the Evening Standard, French clubs Nice, Marseille, Bordeaux and Lyon have been in the race to sign the forward but the club appear to have convinced him to stay for at least another season.

Giroud joined Chelsea from Arsenal in the winter transfer window of 2018 after enjoying a fantastic career in North London.

The 32-year-old faces his former side in the Europa League final in Baku and he will be looking to add another goal to his name to win the Europa League golden boot.
