Olivier Giroud admits his lack of time at home. Chelsea is "frustrating" and has hinted that he is prepared to return to France in search of more football.

The 32-year-old, who is out of contract in the summer, has made just six Premier League starts this season.

"Of course it's frustrating," Giroud told French radio station RTL. "Today, I have the impression there is clearly no competition [for places in attack] since January.

"It's like that, I know that I will only play in the Europa League. I try to do what it takes to be as effective as I can for the team."

Giroud, who left Montpellier for Arsenal in the summer of 2012 before joining the Blues in last year, indicated he could be open to a return to domestic French football.

"The future may be hectic this summer," he said. "I'm afraid to go down to level playing time. It could have been my career in France."
