Olivier Giroud: Goals, assists, shots, headers, trophies at Chelsea and Arsenal
Olivier Giroud is on the cusp of a move from Chelsea to Milan as the Frenchman finally leaves the Premier League after a successful period in England.
The World Cup winner is arguably one of the most underrated players in the league currently as he has proved himself not only a formidable target man, but a player capable of moments of brilliance.
It seems that, for Arsenal fans especially, his talent was only really appreciated after he left the club.
Chelsea will be hoping a similar situation doesn't happen at Stamford Bridge.
After falling down the pecking order at Chelsea under Frank Lampard and then Thomas Tuchel, Giroud has sought pastures new for game time.
At Milan, he will have Zlatan Ibrahimovic as competition for the centre-forward role, but both men are no spring chickens, so will likely share the responsibilities up front.
Here, we look back on Giroud's career in England, in numbers.
