Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is reportedly attracting interest from Crystal Palace and West Ham United.

The France international is expected to leave the Blues when his contract expires at the end of the campaign.

He has been linked with a possible move to the Serie A with Lazio and AC Milan among the clubs interested.

However, according to, he could remain in the English capital with interest from Palace and West Ham.

Palace are planning a major summer rebuild, and Giroud has been identified as one of their top striker targets.

West Ham, on the other hand, are eyeing a new target man after parting ways with Sebastien Haller in January.

The club have already qualified for European football, and may have the edge over Palace in the player's pursuit.

Giroud has netted 11 goals during the course of the current campaign. Six of those have come in the Champions League.

He previously talked about staying with the Blues, but his stance has changed after the lack of game time under Thomas Tuchel.
