Chelsea Miss Out On Edin Dzeko, Signs Olivier Giroud From Arsenal For £17.5m

Chelsea FC on Wednesday transfer deadline day signed Olivier Giroud from Arsenal for a reported fee of £17.5 million. Olivier Giroud becomes Chelsea’s third signing of the winter window after reportedly putting pen to paper on an 18-month contract.

Olivier Girouds decision to join Chelsea was as a result of been a surplus to the requirements at Arsenal following the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund,

Meanwhile, Chelsea outcast Michy Batshuayi is expected to complete a loan move to Dortmund before midnight today.

However, AS Roma have suggested that Chelsea failed to sign Edin Dzeko because they were unwilling to meet the striker’s asking price. The Premier League champions did manage to strike a deal with Roma this month as Emerson Palmieri completed his £25 million move to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

But Chelsea were unable to secure a move for Dzeko, who will now stay with the Serie A club after rejecting the offer to return to the Premier League.
