Giroud joined Chelsea from Arsenal during the January transfer window in 2018 and became Europa League joint top scorer and is the first Chelsea player ever to reach double figures for goals in a single season of European football.
“I am very happy to sign a new contract. I really wanted to stay at least one more year – I have felt a part of the team, the family, since the beginning and hopefully there will be more trophies to come,” he told the club website.
The Blues director, Marina Granovskaia said:
“We are very pleased that Olivier will be a Chelsea player for another season. Since joining us 18 months ago, he has at times had to be patient and wait for opportunities, but has still been able to make a positive contribution to the team.”
“Whether it is his unselfish link-up play or his 10 Europa League goals this season, he has been a crucial member of the squad and we hope he will be able to pick up a second Chelsea winner’s medal in Baku later this month to accompany last season’s FA Cup win.”
