Serie A giants eyeing move for 6 ft 5 Chelsea star

Inter Milan are allegedly chasing Chelsea misfit Olivier Giroud this summer’s transfer market, but they could face stern Serie A competition from Lazio for the experienced French striker.

The 34-year-old is available on a free transfer, and it seems extremely unlikely he’ll be sticking around at Stamford Bridge.

He has then been on the bench for three UEFA Champions League matches and the Premier League draw against Brighton as head coach Thomas Tuchel looks to be planning for life without him.

Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato also states that the Turkish giants Fenerbahce are keen on the attacker, who hopes to be a part of his country’s UEFA Euro 2020 squad this summer.

They want to ‘treat themselves’ to the world champion striker months after bringing in playmaker Mesut Ozil from Arsenal.

While Inter Milan would seem like the most attractive variant for the former Arsenal centre-forward after they romped home the title in the Italian top-flight, there is some history with Lazio.

His Italian agent revealed in March that he almost signed for I Biancocelesti Lazio last summer but Olivier is said to have stayed at Chelsea because the Blues could not find a replacement.
