Despite Chelsea reportedly agreeing a one-year extension with Olivier Giroud, the veteran striker’s future is hardly certain, with the move (if true) largely seen as Chelsea ensuring that we don’t lose him for free in the summer.

In the meantime, Chelsea continue to be linked with other older strikers, like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Dries Mertens to fill the experience-void at the club and provide competition for young Tammy Abraham.
