Olivier Giroud is a French International player who plays as a forward for Premier League club Chelsea and the France national team.

Giroud was the division's top scorer with 21 goals, earning him a move to top-flight side Montpellier. Giroud was again the top scorer with 21 goals in the 2011–12 season, giving the club their first ever Ligue 1 title before moving to Arsenal.

Giroud won the FA Cup with Arsenal in 2014, 2015, and 2017, and totaled 105 goals in 253 games for the club. In January 2018, he transferred to Chelsea where in his first full season, he became the first player from the club to score more than 10 goals in a single European campaign.

A strong, physical forward, Giroud is lethal in the air and clinical with his feet in and around the penalty area. He played an important role in our recent successes in the FA Cup (2018) and the Europa League (2019), scoring against his former club in the final of the latter competition in Baku. 

Olivier Giroud made his full international debut for France in 2011. He has since become the nation's third-highest goalscorer with 39 goals in 96 caps and was part of the teams which reached the quarter-finals at UEFA Euro 2012 and the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the final of UEFA Euro 2016 (in which he received the Bronze Boot as joint second-highest goalscorer), and won the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
