Milan leading race to sign £110,000-a-week Chelsea forward

The London giants centre-forward Olivier Giroud has been linked with a winter move to Serie A leaders AC Milan. France international has found chances hard to come by at Chelsea this term, despite scoring several important goals towards the tail end of the last campaign just as he did last night.

With the European Championships pencilled in for next summer, Olivier needs game-time. Rossoneri are keen to offer him an escape route.

The report claims that Rossoneri are in the market for a backup striker for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and the French centre-forward fits the mould that they’re looking for in the transfer market, while they presumably wouldn’t have to break the bank to sign him.

The 34-year-old centre-forward ought to think carefully before taking his next step in winter if he is to make one. It makes little sense to sign for another club where he will yet again be second fiddle.

The French centre-forward’s still at the top of his game and a footballer with his pedigree has earned the right to be a first-choice striker at a top club. He ought to remain patient and wait for the right option because the chances are there’ll be a fair few presented to him when winter comes around.
