- Olivier Giroud might leave Chelsea six months before the expiration of his deal
- The Frenchman has a contract with the Blues until the summer of 2021
- Inter Milan are hoping to seal a deal for him having failed when they tried in the summer
Inter Milan are reportedly interested in luring Olivier Giroud away from Chelsea when the January transfer window opens.
The Frenchman has a deal with the Blues until the summer of 2021 having signed an extension with them at the end of last season.
However, he remains a fringe player under Frank Lampard who appears to prefer younger players in his matchday squad.
The former England midfielder prefers Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham before even considering the former Arsenal man.
Giroud has made just six appearances with one goal credited to his name across all competitions this term but the player wants more time on the pitch.
The 34-year-old wants more playing time to secure his place in his national team squad for Euro 2021 championship.
Meanwhile, SunSport citing Italian outlet CalcioMercato reports that the Serie A campaigners are ready to raid the Premier League for the forward.
Antonio Conte-tutored side has already landed players like Ashley Young, Alexis Sanchez, and Christian Eriksen.
Giroud was earlier linked with a move to San Siro in the summer but decided to remain at Stamford Bridge with the hope of keeping up his post-lockdown run of form.
The France ace scored seven goals after football's return - six in the Premier League and one in the FA Cup win over Manchester United.
He has been involved in two EFL Cup games while playing just 33 minutes in the Premier League this season.
With about seven months left on his deal with the Blues, he will be able to sign a pre-contract deal with European clubs over a free move on July 1.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Chelsea's forward Olivier Giroud marked a century of caps for the French national team with two stunning goals in their 7-1 triumph over Ukraine at Stade de France.
The brace moved him to become the second all-time highest goalscorer for his country with 42 goals in 100 games.
Arsenal legend Henry Thiery sits at the summit of the chart with 51 goals after 123 appearances for the French team.
