Olivier Giroud is a French professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Chelsea and the France national team.

He began his career at Grenoble in Ligue 2 before joining Tours in 2008. In his second season at Tours, he was the division's top scorer with 21 goals, earning him a move to top-flight side Montpellier. Giroud was again the top scorer with 21 goals in the 2011–12 season, giving the club their first ever Ligue 1 title before moving to Arsenal. Giroud won the FA Cup with Arsenal in 2014, 2015 and 2017, and totalled 105 goals in 253 games for the club. In January 2018, he transferred to Chelsea on an 18-month contract.

Giroud made his full international debut for France in 2011. He has earned over 50 caps, and was part of the teams which reached the quarter-finals at UEFA Euro 2012 and the 2014 FIFA World Cup, as well as the final of UEFA Euro 2016, in which he finished as the joint second-highest goalscorer of the competition, and was awarded the Bronze Boot.
