Have AC Milan dropped a hint via their official website that Olivier Giroud will be signing for the club this summer?
Though Giroud will still be on a high having won the Champions League with Chelsea, attention will fast turn to deciding where he will be playing his football next term.
The France international is out of contract at the end of the month and there is nothing to suggest that he will be penning an extension with the Blues.
According to Sky Sport journalist Angelo Mangiante, AC Milan are set to open talks with the intention of reaching an agreement to sign the striker upon his departure from Chelsea.
ACMilan-Giroud (top free agent) will open talks in the next days.
Paolo Maldini wants to reach agreement (with Chelsea) also for Tomori.

In an article about AC Milan centre-back Simon Kjaer, the club’s media team clearly decided to have a little fun by teasing supporters with Giroud’s inclusion.
