Pundit: Chelsea boss Antonio Conte does not want Olivier Giroud

His move across the capital comes having fallen down the pecking order at Arsenal this season, and Giroud has revealed he was urged to change clubs for the good of his international career.

Andy Carroll, Peter Crouch, Islam Slimani, Ashley Barnes and Edin Dzeko were all blips on the transfer radar after it was announced that Olivier Giroud was a Chelsea player earlier this week.

'I wanted to stay in the Premier League and Chelsea was a great opportunity for me'.

"But the choice was fairly clear and obvious from the moment I knew Antonio Conte wanted to work with me".

Chelsea are struggling at the fourth position in the Premier League, behind on goal difference from third placed Liverpool.

Chelsea come up against a Watford side that has only won one of their six games during the calendar year and they are just three points above the relegation zone after failing to win either of their outings under new manager, Javi Gracia, losing 1-0 at Southampton and drawing 0-0 at Stoke.

'I could have stayed, but I needed a solution to get back in.

"The conversation was more important, I know that Conte appreciates my profile, we will work well together".

"There is a lot of work to be done for the near future".

"I had wanted to stay at Arsenal to try my luck even when Alex Lacazette arrived".

While Luiz has made the starting XI, January signings Olivier Giroud and Emerson have had to settle for spots among the substitutes.

"But the fact is, the coach wanted to recruit a new forward [Aubameyang]".

Players such as Morata and Bakayoko may not be the finished products, but with proper coaching should become ones in due course.

"With Aubameyang signing for Arsenal that would have made it at least three centre-forwards". Sevilla was interested, Roma contacted my agent.
