Chelsea fans were over the moon after reports over Olivier Giroud’s future emerged.
Does Giroud deserve to play more?
According to the Daily Mail, the Blues are willing to listen to offers for the striker with the Frenchman likely to leave the club in the January transfer window.
Giroud has struggled for regular starts this season, starting just three of the club’s 22 games in all competitions (via Transfermarkt).
His time at the club has proved a decent success as he’s reached three finals and won two trophies, scoring the opening goal in the 4-1 thumping of former club Arsenal in the Europa League final last year despite his lack of appearances.
He also scored the opening goal of the 2018 FA Cup semi-final against Southampton as the west London side went on to lift the trophy after beating Manchester United in the final.
Despite his success at Stamford Bridge, fans seemed to be ecstatic about possibly seeing the back of the striker as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the west London faithful:

That’s good. I was among the fans that keep complaining why Lampard is not giving Giroud playing time.
But with his lackadaisical performance against West ham, I wouldn’t mind if that match will be his last for Chelsea. His body language shows no interest… #CFC 💙 https://t.co/rr2rw3HKTp
