Russia 2018 World Cup winner Olivier Giroud is close to agreeing on a new deal to remain at Europa League finalist Chelsea.
The former Arsenal striker’s current deal will end June but the West London club are keen to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge.
And according to Sky Sports News, an agreement has been reached between the parties involved.
Sportsmail reported last week that Chelsea will not sign Gonzalo Higuain and he will return to Juventus when his loan at the club ends.
The 32-year-old Giroud has played 46 times for Chelsea so far this season and has scored 12.
He will be looking to round off his season by lifting silverware when Chelsea take on Arsenal in the Europa League final in Baku, Azerbaijan on May 29.
