, wishes to remain at the English club during the current transfer season. The Frenchman still has till June 2021 before deciding on his future, but if he chooses to extend his stay with Chelsea he’ll be giving Lampard a reason to be happy.

Giroud told

Le Dauphine Libere

about his situation, saying :

"The ambition is to win something with Chelsea this season. The rest of my career, in the short term, I see it at Chelsea. Now we know that things are going very quickly in football, for good and bad [reasons]. I want to keep a cool head and concentrate on the pitch.”

"My contract at Chelsea will end in June, even though I have the option to stay for another year. We will discuss it at the end of the year.”

"But, once again, I have the ambition to win something with Chelsea this season because I have high hopes linked to the quality of our squad."

Chelsea hope to extend the player’s stay now that

has chosen to shift his attention to

When asked about their interest in Giroud, replied:

"He'd be handy!"

"The window opens tomorrow, we already discussed with the club what we want to do and if there are any opportunities. Maybe a striker that can rotate with our strikers."

Giroud hopes his contract extension with the Blues would prevent him from moving to other leagues as he looks forward to take part in
