The mid November international break is certainly the perfect time to talk some transfer rumors, as the January window will be here before you know it. In this article we focus on Chelsea FC, and we begin with the Mirror reporting that Olivier Giroud has declared his intentions to stay at Stamford Bridge and fight for his place in the team.

The Frenchman has just one goal in 12 appearances (just four in the Premier League) this season, and he’s lost his place in the starting XI to Alvaro Morata.

“Of course, I am a competitor and I would like more playing time. But I am in a very big club, with very big players,” Olivier Giroud said.

“I am going to fight and for the moment, it is not a question about seeking a departure. I am going to stick in there and do not expect me to give up.”

He could have even more competition at Chelsea soon as the club reportedly continue to monitor Bournemouth forward Callum Wilson. The English international has been impressive during this international break, scoring in the Three Lions rout of the USMNT at Wembley Stadium last Thursday night.

The Blues have also been linked to Inter Milan’s Argentinian international Mauro Icardi, who could be available at a cut price due to Inter’s concern that they may be facing UEFA sanctions for violations of FFP regulations. Icardi is also drawing the interst of Manchester United.

Another Chelsea target at the position is Genoa’s Krzysztof Piatek, who has made a vocal plea for a big rich club to come and get him.

“The dream of those who come to Genoa is that they use it as a stepping stone towards a big club,” Piatek told Corriere della Sera. “If I continue this way, I could sign for a big club. My objective is to play in the Champions League.”
