Giroud to leave Chelsea in January

Olivier Giroud is ready to leave Chelsea during the January transfer window in order to boost his chances of starting for France at Euro 2020.

Giroud has experienced a tough season with the Blues and he has been restricted to just one start and three substitute appearances.

Despite this, the 34-year-old has remained a prominent figure for Les Bleus and he recently bagged a brace against Sweden.

According to The Guardian, Giroud will look to leave the Blues in the next transfer window unless he is guaranteed regular gametime.

Inter and Lazio are known to be admirers of the former Arsenal man and both clubs could come up with bids at the turn of the year.

With just eight months left on his contract, the Blues may accept a fee of around £4m to part ways with the 2018 World Cup winner.

Giroud was previously also on the radar of Tottenham Hotspur, but it is unclear whether they will make an attempt to sign him.
