In 5 months time, Olivier Giroud will walk away from Chelsea as a free agent. The 34-years-old have not been offered a contract extension despite playing a pivotal role in keeping Chelsea in the FA Cupl top 4 contention and the Champions League.
His availability in the summer as spurred former Tony Cascarino to call on Liverpool to sign him cause he is far better than Roberto Firmino.
Giroud is frankly underrated by most fans pro ably due to his lack of pace but, when it comes predatory instinct and physicality, very few attackers can match the world cup winner.
Surprisingly, Giroud isn’t just about muscles and movement, he is skilled in scoring incredible goals. His scorpion kick goal won him the Puskas for best goal in 2015 and against Atletico Madrid, he scored a unbelievable bicycle to give Chelsea a vital away goal.
The French man can also do everything that Firmino does at Liverpool plus, he excellent in scoring in big matches. Liverpool definitely need a top striker like Giroud who can offer them quality service upfront even for a year.
Cascarino wants Liverpool to sign him once the chance presents itself but do Liverpool really need a striker who turns 35 next season?
