Serie A giants could sign Chelsea 6 ft 5 forward this summer

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has dropped a hint that he may be prepared to consider a transfer to Serie A giants, AC Milan later in the summer window.

Last week, it was revealed that the French forward’s contract had been extended by the Blues for an extra 12 months, seemingly ending rumours regarding a switch to San Siro.

However, speaking while on international duty in France, the former Arsenal forward has suggested that he will only think about any further developments on the team scene once he has represented his country at Euro 2020.

Speaking to reporters, Giroud said: “I want to make it clear that Chelsea reactivated the clause in April and they recently announced it to comply with Premier League rules.

“It’s fair to remember that I liked Marco van Basten and Andriy Shevchenko. Milan are a big club and one of the great teams in Europe. But, today, I will not talk about my future at the club because I am focused on the France team and the Euros, which is fast approaching.”

French powerhouse barely featured during the closing weeks of 2020/21 season, playing just 71 minutes from the start of April.
