Picture of the 1.93 m (6 ft 4 in) tall French striker of Chelsea

Lil' Olivier started his youth career at the local club OS Froges. He was discovered by Grenoble Foot 38 at the age of thirteen. He played six years in Grenoble's youth academy when he signed his first professional contract in 2005. In his first professional season he became a important player for Grenoble B. He scored fifteen goals in fifteen matches, pretty impressive for a newcomer! On 24 March 2006 he made his professional football debut against FC Gueugnon. In his first season he would play six games at the highest level. Not much, but his talents were obvious: in 2008-09 the young and promising striker signed a contract at FC Tours. After two amazing and productive years at Tours he signed for Montpellier in 2010. It was at Montpellier where he made his major breakthrough, and where France and Europe got to know him for real. His absolute highlight at Montpellier was winning the Ligue 1 in the 2011-12 season, in which Charming Olivier played a very important role. Almost every club in Europe was fighting for his signature, and in June 2012 he decided to sign for Arsenal FC. He played over 180 games for the Gunners in which he made 73 goals. Almost six years later, in January 2018, he signed a contract at Chelsea. He made his debut in the starting eleven against West Bromwich Albion only a couple of weeks later.
