By | January 14, 2020

According to the reports from Italy, Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud has reportedly agreed to make January switch to Inter Milan.

The 33-year-old’s current deal expires at the end of this campaign and he is expected to depart from the club over the current window in order to gain regular first-team football somewhere else as he is keen on to participate in Euro 2020 for France national team.

Frenchman has become frustrated at a lack of game time under Frank Lampard, having fallen behind Mitchy Batshuayi and Tammy Abraham.

According to journalist Nicolo Shira, French forward has agreed on a deal with Serie A giants which runs until the summer of 2022, with the forward set to receive £3.4m in wages along with bonuses.

Inter head-coach Antonio Conte, who worked with Giroud at Stamford Bridge, is keen on adding experience to his team ahead of the second half of the 2019-20 season.

Meanwhile, Man Utd and Chelsea reportedly both had scouts in attendance to keep close tabs on Lyon forward Moussa Dembele during his side’s Coupe de la Ligue game with Brest on Wednesday.

The West London club are believed to have made Dembele one of their top transfer targets this winter transfer window, with head-coach Frank Lampard reported to have £150m at his disposal after their transfer ban reduced.

The Blues have already reportedly offered French forward Olivier Giroud plus £40m for Dembele, however, the Daily Mail reports that they could now face stiff competition from PL rivals Manchester United.
