Olivier Giroud's agent admits that his client could leave Chelsea during the January transfer window.

Olivier Giroud's agent has admitted that he will look to move the Chelsea striker on during the January transfer window unless his client's playing situation improves in the coming weeks.

The 34-year-old has been restricted to just 33 minutes of Premier League football this season, while he has managed just one goal in six appearances in all competitions.

France boss Didier Deschamps has warned Giroud that he must earn more game time at club level in order to ensure that he remains an important player for the national team ahead of Euro 2020.

The forward's agent Michael Manuello has now addressed the situation and has admitted that a move will be on the cards at the start of 2021 unless something changes in the near future.

"Effectively, since the start of September, things have changed but what has not changed is his capacity to play matches for France, contrary to what was said by certain others," Manuello told FootMercato.

"There have been €150m (£134m) worth of players bought. But at the same time you'd be blind not to see that Frank Lampard has decided to put Tammy Abraham ahead of him. It is not frankly fair when you look at what Olivier did at the end of the season. But he (Lampard) has the right, it is his choice.

"So effectively if things continue like this, in December we will find ourselves where we were in December 2019. Things have happened in the last five months. We cannot just look at the last two months and be forgetful about the three years that came before it. But we have to be honest and if this continues, we will have to, first and foremost for him, experience other emotions."

Giroud is believed to be a January transfer target for Italian giants Inter Milan.
