Chelsea have reportedly set Olivier Giroud’s asking price at around £7 million.

The French international has made 69 matches for the Blues since signing them from Arsenal last January transfer window, netting 19 goals and providing 13 assists.

Oliver Giroud has been far from a regular under Frank Lampard this campaign so far, making just six matches with a goal and an assist to his name. The likes of Michy Batshuayi and Tammy Abraham have been preferred ahead of him, and there’s a good chance he might leave the Blues.

La Gazzetta Dello Sport claims that Chelsea want £7 million for World Cup winning forward. Inter are interested in joining him with Goal Italy reporting that the Nerazzurri are eyeing him and Roma’s Alessandro Florenzi in the winter transfer window.

Given the amount of play time Giroud is getting at Frank Lampard’s side, there’s every chance he might depart the club this winter or next summer. £7 million is nothing Inter can’t afford, and Milan would be a suitable target for the Frenchman. Giroud could bolster Antonio Conte’s attack, which already has Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez. Though, it would be hard for him to find first-team possibilities there as well.
