Chelsea need three world class players to catch Manchester City – Antonio Conte

When money talks...

Giroud made the switch across London from Arsenal to Chelsea on deadline day after the Gunners finally sealed a club-record deal for striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte names January signing Olivier Giroud on the bench for the Premier League fixture at Watford.

Michy Batshuayi joined Borussia Dortmund but according to the former Arsenal striker, the Bundesliga side wanted him as well as a Serie A and La Liga team.

Conte must make do without centre-back Andreas Christensen, who has a hamstring issue, while Alvaro Morata still has a back problem.

French TV show Telefoot have spoken to Giroud this week following his move from Arsenal. Giroud is now in contention with Alexander Lacazzette and several other France forwards to make it to the upcoming FIFA World Cup and his game time at Arsenal was clearly not enough.

Of course, there's the 2018 World Cup just around the corner.

OLIVIER GIROUD has revealed he was urged by French boss Didier Deschamps to quit Arsenal. Although he didn't say "go to Chelsea".

'Dortmund were interested but for a loan deal. Both clubs' main strikers were also heavily linked to Premier League moves in January. That's the logic and why I chose to leave Arsenal.

"The fact is that the coach wanted to recruit a new striker and with Aubameyang's signing at Arsenal, there were three top strikers, and that's why I chose to leave", Giroud told Telefoot. "I had offers from Dortmund, Sevilla and Roma". "Il ne m'a pas dit de rejoindre Chelsea mais juste de changer de club".
