Arsenal striekr Olivier Giroud would be the “perfect” signing for Chelsea according to pundit Ray Parlour.
Defending Premier League champions are looking to provide support to summer signing Alvaro Morata as Conte feels that Michy Batshuayi is not good enough to challenge Spaniard for the first-team role at the club.
The Blues have been linked with surprising moves for Stoke City veteran Peter Crouch and West Ham powerhouse Andy Carroll in the recent days.
Giroud’s future at Emirates Stadium is uncertain having only started one League game this far.
A possible move to Dortmund has been mooted, with the Frenchman touted as a makeweight in a deal for Gabon forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Former Arsenal midfielder Pauler believes that Antonio Conte should seriously consider making a bid for French forward..
“He would be perfect,” Parlour told Sky Sports show The Debate.
“But whether Arsenal would want to lose another player to their rivals is another matter.
“But I’m sure if Chelsea put a decent bid in, he’d be tempted.
“He hasn’t got to move, he can live in London.
“A little bit like Petr Cech, that’s the only reason he went to Arsenal at the time because everything was settled in London and he wanted to stay in London.”
