- Olivier Giroud spent most of the just concluded season on the Chelsea bench
- The Frenchman has hinted of a possible exit from the Stamford Bridge club
- Reports have it that the manager Frank Lampard is doing everything possible to revamp his squad
Olivier Giroud could be making his final appearance for Chelsea on Saturday, August 1 when the Blues take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final at the prestigious Wembley stadium.
The Frenchman has spent about a half of the season on the bench and now he is poised to leaving the club as his contract is set to lapse.
Although there are reports that Frank Lampard is set to overhaul the squad ahead of the coming season, Giroud nevertheless believes the Blues could offer him a contract extension.
"I still have one year to run on my Chelsea contract,” Giroud told French outlet L'Equipe.
"If (I stay at) Chelsea, I’ll be happy. If this is not the case, another challenge will be presented to me.
"I can still play in a top league for another two years. I don’t set any limits for myself.
"I remember a discussion I had with Arsene Wenger. He told me that he saw me playing well until the age of 35 because, as I get older, my game would not be penalised since it is not based on speed."
Also, Willian will decide his future after Chelsea’s FA Cup final against Arsenal on Saturday, August 1, but latest reports have it that Spanish club Barcelona have offered the Brazilian a three-year-deal.
The 31-year-old’s contract with the Blues is set to expire with Premier League clubs Arsenal and Tottenham also chasing the winger.
Willian’s agent Kia Joorabchian has disclosed that at least five offers have been received for the player with the latest one coming from La Liga giants Barcelona.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Chelsea are reportedly planning to make a £55 million offer for Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson this summer.
The 23-year-old's loan deal at Sheffield United will expire this month with the Englishman expected back at Old Trafford afterward.
He has however been touted as a quality replacement for David De Gea after showing superb displays during his time at the Bramall Lane.
His impressive performances have attracted interests from top managers but Frank Lampard seems more desperate to secure his services after losing confidence in Kepa Arrizabalaga.
