Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has affirmed that he wants to remain at Stamford Bridge.
The France international has struggled for game time over the likes of Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner this term, but Giroud proved his worth to Chelsea with all four goals in their 4-0 win over Sevilla in the Champions League.
With a spot in France's Euros squad at stake, Giroud has been linked with a move elsewhere in order to get more first-team action, but the former Arsenal man has reiterated his desire to stay at Chelsea.
Speaking to the official Chelsea website, Giroud said: "I just have to show the manager that I am ready to fight until the end, as I told him at the beginning of the season, but obviously to be happy I need to be a little bit more on the pitch.
"The gaffer gave me the opportunity to play and I hope I will have more opportunities again because I think I've shown him that I am ready to fight for the team. We all want to be on the pitch but we have a great squad.
"If I play a bit more than in the beginning of the season, I have a good chance to be fit and ready for the Euros. I had a conversation with Deschamps and he said if the situation stayed like that, I will have to take a decision in January.
" I am pretty sure I can get some more game time and stay at Chelsea because that is what I want. I want to win trophies with Chelsea so basically that's it.
"You never know in football, everything is going very fast, but right now I am very happy. I am a happy man and I am proud to be a Chelsea player."
