The Blues completed a deadline day move that saw Michy Batshuayi going on loan to German club Borussia Dortmund and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joining Arsenal.

"Maybe he forgot that have 18 months with contract at Chelsea and my will and desire is to fulfill this contract".

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's arrival at Arsenal paved the way for Giroud to leave after five-and-a-half years at the Emirates as he sought more minutes on the field to further his case for inclusion in France's World Cup squad.

Belgium global Batshuayi has yet to earn any of Lewandowski's or Aubameyang's honours, having made 53 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions since joining from Olympique Marseille in July 2016 and scoring 19 goals.

Ultimately he was probably best as a "plan b" type of striker at a top club which he finally settled into at the end of his Arsenal stint and looks to like he will continue during his time at Chelsea.

It is three years since he last enjoyed consistent status as Arsenal's first-choice striker, but the reality is that his importance increased with his reduced role. Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang linked up to great effect when they played together at Dortmund in the 2015-16 season, scoring 62 goals between them in all competitions.

The 28-year-old, who scored 98 goals in 144 Bundesliga games for Dortmund, is a replacement for Alexis Sanchez following his switch to Manchester United.

"I think the club have such a big history with great players like Thierry Henry, so it's an example for us strikers. he was fast and scored a lot of goals". The video was quickly taken down.

The French striker watched from the subs bench as Arsenal meekly went down 3-1 to Swansea on Tuesday who started the day bottom of the table. It left Wenger's team in sixth place with 13 matches left.

Elsewhere, runaway leaders Manchester City has lodged a surprise £60m bid for 2016 champions Leicester City's Algerian star Riyad Mahrez, who ignored manager Claude Puel's pleas for him to stay by putting in a transfer request. The French worldwide is highly experienced and has done well for the Gunners since joining from Montpellier.

The France worldwide will join the Blues on an 18-month contract with an option to extend it for another year after the two clubs agreed a deal on Wednesday.
