Chelsea will sell Olivier Giroud if a club matches his £5m asking price, according to The Express.

West Ham have recently been linked with a move for Giroud. According to Claret & Hugh, West Ham will explore the possibility of signing Giroud in January. The Irons will have to cough up £5m for the French striker.

Sebastien Haller and Albian Ajeti are the only two recognised strikers on West Ham’s books. With the Hammers struggling for goals, Giroud could be the answer. He has a proven track record of scoring in the Premier League.

According to this report by The Express, Giroud is attracting attention from six clubs across the world. It looks like Giroud will have offers from France, Italy and Canada.

 

Giroud could be set for a return to Ligue 1 after leaving Montpellier for Arsenal in 2012. The 33-year-old is now wanted by Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille and Nice.

Antonio Conte also wants a reunion with Giroud and could bring him to Inter Milan. Serie A would be a new challenge for Giroud, as would a switch to the MLS. Vancouver Whitecaps are in the hunt for the veteran striker too.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace have been linked recently. According to The Sun, Palace want to sign Giroud 12 months after landing Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea. West Ham will have to win an eight-club race to land the Frenchman.
