French Ligue 1 outfit Nice president Gauthier Ganaye has challenged Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri over the future of Olivier Giroud at the Stamford Bridge.

Olivier Giroud has been linked away from the West London outfit over lack of playing time with reports claiming that he would be leaving as soon as the season is over.

However, manager Maurizio Sarri recently stated that an agreement has been reached between the club and the former Arsenal striker for him to remain at the club, insisting that Olivier Giroud will be at Chelsea next season.

This has been challenged by Nice president who claims that a move is possible because his club are already considering a move for the World Cup winner at the end of the season.

The Nice President noted that Olivier Giroud’s contract with the Blues is already expiring at the end of the season while no agreement has been reached. He added that his club are aware that his salary wills e huge but they are ready to meet with that.

However, Olivier Giroud has been criticized for not scoring goals for Chelsea as he has been blamed for the lack of cutting edge in the team but the club have insisted on keeping him ahead of coming season.
