Olivier Giroud has praised Chelsea’s recent trophy haul after completing his move from Arsenal.

The Frenchman has joined Chelsea for a fee in the region of £15m-£20m, departing Arsenal after five-and-a-half years of service in north London.

He declared himself “proud” to join the Premier League champions in his first interview.

“Chelsea is one of the biggest teams in the Premier League,” he told the club’s official website. “They have won maybe the most trophies in the last six or seven years.

“It’s a massive club and I am proud to sign for Chelsea, and I’m looking forward to playing.”

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: “Olivier is a proven talent at the top level and we are very pleased to call him a Chelsea player.

“He has scored goals regularly throughout his career and is well accustomed to English football and the Premier League. We are sure he will be a fantastic signing.”
