Chelsea striker, Olivier Giroud, has said new team-mate Timo Werner doesn’t have the equivalent ‘profile’ as him.

Werner joined Blues in June in a £53million move from RB Leipzig.
The 24-year-old signed a five-year manage the Blues, following a season in which he scored 34 goals in 45 games.
Werner has just opened his Chelsea account, scoring four minutes into their benevolent against Brighton.
He joins Giroud and Tammy Abraham as Lampard’s middle forward choices, however the previous Arsenal man accepts the new signing will help assurance around the Cobham preparing ground.
Giroud told Telefoot: “I haven’t spoken to Lampard. One thing is certain: the competition will pull us all to the top. A great club should have different options in each position.
“We want to be in the race for the title and I’m here. I finished the season well and I proved to the manager that he can count on me.
“Werner is not the same profile as me; I hope to have some playing time.”
