Chelsea fee set for AC Milan target Giroud

Chelsea are insisting on a fee from AC Milan for Olivier Giroud.

The Daily Star says Giroud is closing on a move to the San Siro after various outlets reported he had agreed a deal with the Serie A side.

The former Arsenal striker is expected to join Stefano Pioli's side on a two-year deal, with Chelsea set to bank up to £2.5million.

It's not a huge transfer fee - and nor would one be expected for a 34-year-old who has just entered the final year of his contract.

But the fact that Chelsea will receive any fee at all is testament to the work of director Marina Granovskaia, who tied Giroud down to a new deal only last month even though it was clear the striker could look to move on this summer.
