Olivier Giroud has paid tribute to his new manager, Antonio Conte, after joining Chelsea from Arsenal on deadline day.

The France international, who will wear the No.18 shirt at Stamford Bridge, is believed to have cost the reigning Premier League champions around £18million.

Giroud scored over 100 goals in 253 appearances in over five years at Arsenal and won three FA Cups with the Gunners. He was in the stands as Chelsea were beaten 3-0 by Bournemouth on Wednesday evening.
