Olivier Giroud believes his future may lie elsewhere after Chelsea decided to land Gonzalo Higuain, who the Frenchman believes will deliver for the Blues. 

Giroud is convinced Higuain, who joined on loan from Juventus, will score goals at Stamford Bridge, but believes the Argentine would need time to adjust to English football.

The 31-year-old has already been backed by Eden Hazard to help fill the void left by Diego Costa. 

However, speaking after their 3-0 FA Cup win over Wednesday, Giroud said as the Metro reported: "It is a good start for him (Higuain). He needs to take the rhythm, you know, because it is totally different to Serie A. But, yeah, for sure he will score goals for us."

Giroud, who is out of contract in the summer, has revealed he will consider his future as well as a move back to France this summer, though he’ll prefer to continue plying his trade in the Premier League.

"I will never make people unanimously satisfied with me," Giroud, who has made in six Premier League starts, told French outlet Canal, in an interview shot last week but was released on Sunday.

"There is a little part of regret and frustration. The public expects a goalscorer to score goals. I'm the fourth best goalscorer of French football and nobody can take that away from me.

"The coach makes [Eden] Hazard play nine which is detrimental to strikers. But he is the best player I've ever played with.

"If the club decides to get another striker, like Higuain, it will certainly darken my future at Chelsea.

"I have never said no to a return to France. Lyon and Marseille are two great clubs. My priority is to stay in the Premier League though."
