Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud has admitted he still wants to win the Premier League title before he retires after failure to pick up the silverware during his time with Arsenal.

The Frenchman made the £18m move to West London in January after the Blues had let go of Michy Batshuayi to Borussia Dortmund, and the forward has already made an impact under Antonio Conte.

When speaking to former Blues defender William Gallas, as quoted by ESPN, the Chelsea forward admitted he was disappointed not to win it with Arsenal, particularly after the length of time he was at the club: "I don't know if we can really call it a regret but I have a little feeling of unfinished business because I would really have liked to have won the Premier League with Arsenal.

"You don't just wipe away five-and-a-half years like that. I have said it often enough - it was my ultimate goal."

However, since making to move to Chelsea in January, Giroud still has hopes of picking up Premier League medal in the near future, despite conceding that this season is over for the Blues in terms of domestic success.

"Having said that, it's not over, I'm still in the Premier League, now I'm at Chelsea. For this year, I think it's over for the title, but next year, we'll come to it with great ambitions.

"I still want to win it before I end my career."

If Chelsea continue their recent Premier League record, then he will win his first Premier League title with the Blues as they have won it twice in the last three seasons.
