Olivier Giroud and his wife Jennifer are to exit London, England, after spending eight years of their lives in the Premier League playing for Chelsea and Arsenal.

The 34-year-old French football star and his wife arrived in London on July 1, 2012, from French club, Montpellier. His first club in the city was Arsenal. The Gunners paid £10.80 million to bring him to the Premier League.

He spent six years at Arsenal. He scored 105 goals for the club in 253 games. During his time at the club, he helped Arsenal to win three FA Cups, and three Community Shield,

Afterward, Olivier Giroud joined Arsenal’s rivals, Chelsea, on January 31, 2018, for a transfer fee worth £15.30 million. During his time at Chelsea, he scored 39 times in 119 games.

Within a short time at the club, he was able to win one FA Cup, one UEFA Champions League, and one UEFA Europa League.

During the 2020-2021 season at Chelsea, Olivier Giroud struggled to play regularly. But at the end of the season, Chelsea offered him a season extension.

That however did not stop him from moving to AC Milan when the Italian club gave him a two years contract which would run until June 30, 2023. According to reports, AC Milan paid Chelsea about £855,000 for the deal.

The club is expected to pay €1 million in bonuses subject to several appearances and qualifications for the Champions League.

Olivier Giroud was in Italy on Friday for his medical and he has successfully completed the medical. But the club was yet to make an official announcement of the deal at the time of publishing this report.

However, the football star has taken to Twitter to appreciate Chelsea and his former teammates. He also appreciated his coaches as he ended his reign in the Premier League.

“To all the Blues, to my teammates, to all my coaches, to the whole club, a huge thank you for these special moments,” he wrote.
