The last time we heard an Olivier Giroud exit rumor was back in April. Since then, a lot has changed, including the man himself signing a one-year contract extension but also Chelsea signing hotshot striker Timo Werner.

Of course, said contract extension could be seen merely as an instrument of financial security. There had been whispers earlier that the 33-year-old could still be sold despite the extension, and the arrival of Timo has only make those murmurs louder.
