Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has revealed where he will play next if he leaves Chelsea.

The French striker was intensely linked with a move to Serie A with Inter Milan and Lazio leading the race.

The 33-year-old former Arsenal man told RMC Sport he would consider a switch to Serie A when the time for transfer comes.

“I’ve been close to moving to Serie A,” he said, as quoted by Teamtalk.

“They appreciated experienced players there, but the transfer didn’t materialise.

“For the future, we will see what happens. I will decide by evaluating the opportunities I will have.

“I’m not ruling out anything, but for now I don’t see me returning to Ligue 1.

“I’d like to play at the highest level in Europe for another two or three years, then maybe I’ll go to the United States.”

Giroud joined Chelsea for £15m in January 2018 after six-years at Arsenal.
