France international Oliver Giroud says he will consider departing the Blues in January transfer market after finding 1st team football hard to come by under Chelsea gaffer Frank Lampard this campaign.

CBS Sports first disclosed on November 6 that Olivier Giroud was considering departing Stamford Bridge with Inter Milan among those teams holding an interest in the France International , MLS team Inter Miami have also been credited with a January transfer.

Olivier Giroud has made just 7 outings all competitions this campaign, starting only one match and playing 36 minutes of English Premier League football. It is a sharp contrast to the last weeks of the previous season when the France International established himself as 1st choice ahead of Tammy Abraham, netting 8 goals in the last 12 top flight games.

The arrival of Germany International Timo Werner plus Tami Abraham's own good form - his goal in Saturday's 2-0 victory over the Magpies was his 3rd in as many matches - has sent Olivier Giroud slipping down the pecking order and could force a mid-campaign move if he is to secure a place in France's Euro 2020 squad.

"It is worrying," he told French publication Telefoot. "I thought I still had a role to play at the Blues, but my game time is getting reduced a lot. It's going to have to change, or else I must make a decision.

"I am clear about my situation at Chelsea: I will have to make a decision in January. I hope to take the appropriate one, as I have always done."

The France international Giroud remains a regular presence in France squads and netted the 43rd and 44th goals of his international career in a 4-2 victory over Sweden last week, moving him within 7 of Thierry Henry's record for Les Bleus. However France manager Didier Deschamps did warn the the Blues striker that he would need "rhythm" to retain a regular role in his side.
