Giroud 'inches' away from Inter deal
- Olivier Giroud is expected to sign a two-year contract with the Serie A side.
- Chelsea and Inter are yet to agree a transfer fee for the striker.
- The deal still seems imminent at the moment.
Chelsea and Inter are yet to reach an agreement over a fee for the striker, however, the transfer itself seems to be imminent.
Giroud has every reason to be frustrated with his current situation at Chelsea. Having dropped to the role of the third-choice striker behind Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi, Olivier has only featured in 7 games across all competitions this season so far, scoring once in the UEFA Super Cup battle against Liverpool.
All in all, Giroud has made 70 appearances, scored 19 goals and registered 13 assists after arriving at Stamford Bridge from Arsenal for an undisclosed fee in winter 2018. The striker has won two trophies with the Blues, including the previous season's Europa League where he scored 11 goals and recorded 5 assists in 14 games.
Despite his difficult situation at Chelsea, the 33-year-old remains a regular for France. With 39 goals for the national team, the 2018 World Cup winner is Les Bleus' third-highest goalscorer of all time, only behind Thierry Henry (51) and Michel Platini (41).
