Olivier Giroud says that he remains fully focused on performing well for Chelsea after missing out on a move to another club in January.

Olivier Giroud has reiterated his commitment to Chelsea after missing out on a transfer during the January window.

With less than six months left on his contract and having fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge, Giroud was heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan, Tottenham Hotspur and Lazio.

However, as a result of Chelsea being unable to find a replacement, the 33-year-old will see out the campaign in West London.

Having made a substitute appearance against Manchester United on Monday night, Giroud has said that he is fully focused on taking any opportunities handed to him over the coming months.

The World Cup winner told talkSPORT: "I am a Chelsea player. Now I need to move on, move forward. I want to give everything for the team and obviously my personal target is to play as much as I can to play the Euros for my country. It is massive for me.

"Things like [January], now I am 100% focused on Chelsea's target and I want to keep fighting, come back on the scoresheet and the teamsheets and every single game is a big opportunity for me to show my desire to come back in the game."

Giroud has been restricted to three starts and five substitute outings in all competitions this season.
