Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has revealed that he almost joined bitter rivals Tottenham in January as he was desperate to leave Stamford Bridge.

The 33-year-old was linked with a move away from the club in the winter transfer window after being frozen out for two months.

Giroud, who joined Chelsea from London rivals Arsenal in 2018, has now admitted that he wanted a departure so badly that he almost made the move back to north London, but this time to Spurs.
