{TRANSFER NEWS} Italian Club Seriously Interested In Signing Chelsea Striker Giroud

Lazio’s sporting director Igli Tare is on his way to London in the hope of finalising a deal to sign Olivier Giroud from Chelsea, according to Sky Italy.

Inter Milan are also still trying to work on a deal to sign the 33-year-old – and there is also interest from Chelsea’s Premier League rivals Tottenham.

But Chelsea will only let the Frenchman leave if they sign a replacement – and have yet to agree a deal with Napoli for Belgium international Dries Mertens.

Sky in Italy are reporting that Lazio are looking to bring Giroud to the Stadio Olimpico on a two-and-a-half-year contract, worth an estimated €3m per season.

Giroud has already turned down two approaches from Newcastle this month.
