Olivier Giroud has revealed he isn't happy with the lack of game-time at Chelsea.
The Frenchman, who joined the Blues from Arsenal last year January, is out of contract at Stamford Bridge this summer and he has hinted that he could secure a move back to Ligue 1.
"Of course it's frustrating," Giroud, who won the World Cup with France last summer, told French radio station RTL. "Today, I have the impression there is clearly no competition [for places in attack] since January.
"It's like that, I know that I will only play in the Europa League. I try to do what it takes to be as effective and as important as I can for the team."
On returning back to France to ply his trade, he said: "The future may be hectic this summer. I'm not afraid to go down a level to have more playing time. It could be I end my career in France."
The 32-year-old, who is out of contract in the summer, has made just six Premier League starts this season.
