Olivier Giroud Shuns Juventus And Inter Milan Transfer Interests

Olivier Giroud will continue at Chelsea this month despite reported interests from Juventus and Inter Milan.

According to Goal, the 34-year-old will see out the remainder of his Stamford Bridge contract after a mixed season under Frank Lampard.

The French striker struggled for minutes during the first few months of the new term, with Tammy Abraham preferred in attack.

But Giroud showed his class when called upon and has ended up scoring nine goals in 15 games.

Despite fighting his way back into contention, it was thought the Chelsea pensioner was exploring new avenues this winter in order to keep his starting place for France at the Euros.

Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte has long been a fan, having signed Giroud for Chelsea from Arsenal in 2018.

Meanwhile, Juventus are said to have joined the race for Giroud’s signature as they look to strengthen their forward line.

However, the FA Cup and Europa League winner will instead remain put for the last six months of his Chelsea contract.
