It’s added that whilst the 33-year-old has provisionally agreed personal terms with the San Siro outfit, a transfer fee has yet to be agreed between Inter and Chelsea.
Whilst Giroud is approaching the final years of his illustrious career, the talisman’s experience and achievements at the top level are very impressive.
The target man has 225 Premier League appearances to his name and has managed to contributed 106 goals (78 goals and 28 assists). The veteran forward also has 39 goals to his name for France.
Given Tammy Abraham’s emergence as Chelsea’s No.9 this season, it seems like Giroud’s time with the Blues is up.
It will be interesting to see how he can add to Conte’s side that are currently leading Serie A, Inter have the chance to put a stop to Juventus’ domestic dominance this season.
