Chelsea striker Giroud hoping Tottenham try again

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is tempted by a summer switch to Tottenham.

The Telegraph says Giroud, whose Chelsea deal expires at the end of June, has been offered a pre-contract by Lazio.

However, he is waiting to see whether Tottenham will follow up the interest they showed in him during the January transfer window.

The 33-year-old was heavily linked with a departure from Chelsea in January, but ended up staying after a deal failed to materialise.

Giroud is permitted to enter negotiations with foreign clubs over a possible deal ahead of next season.

This campaign Giroud has been used sparingly by Chelsea - he has made just five Premier League appearances.
