Chelsea sign Olivier Giroud!


It's been a busy transfer deadline day for Chelsea, who have just signed Olivier Giroud from London rivals Arsenal!

The Blues approached the Gunners for the French striker after Arsenal's move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looked likely.

There was a fascinating merry-go-round move, as Aubameyang moved from Borussia Dortmund to Arsenal, Giroud moved from Arsenal to Chelsea, and Chelsea loaned Michy Batshuayi to Dortmund!

Giroud has signed an 18-month-contract with Chelsea and will wear the number 18 shirt.

The 31 year-old is brilliant in the air, and has also become known for some unbelievable finishes with his feet.

In 69 matches for France, the striker has scored an impressive 29 goals. His goalscoring form is also impressive in the Premier League, and he has never scored fewer than 11 goals in a full Premier League season!

After signing, Giroud told the official Chelsea website: ‘Chelsea is one of the biggest teams in the Premier League. They have won maybe the most trophies in the last six or seven years. It’s a massive club and I am proud to sign for Chelsea, and I’m looking forward to playing.’

The striker will be able to play in the Champions League for Chelsea, as Arsenal aren't in the competition this season.
