Giroud wants Chelsea exit in January?

France international Olivier Giroud could pursue a fresh challenge away from Chelsea when the transfer window reopens in January.

Giroud has found gametime hard to come by with the arrival of Timo Werner while he has also failed to displace Tammy Abraham upfront.

The Frenchman was linked with a move to the Serie A with Inter this summer, but the Blues were adamant that he was not for sale.

The Nerazzurri are still said to be keen on landing his signature and Football.London claims that a deal could go through in January.

Giroud's contract does not expire until June next year, but the former Arsenal man is prepared to leave the west London giants prior to that.

He has been a regular for Les Bleus under Didier Deschamps despite his reduced gametime, but he is still concerned over his position.

He has been a regular starter for the World Cup holders, but could lose his spot ahead of Euro 2020 due to the lack of playing time at club level.
