Chelsea veteran Giroud remains on radar of Crystal Palace

Chelsea veteran Olivier Giroud remains on the radar of Crystal Palace.

The Mirror says Giroud is being chased by Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid - but could end up at Crystal Palace.

The 33-year-old striker is set to leave Chelsea in January in search of regular first-team football. Atletico Madrid have led the hunt with Diego Costa sidelined until February through injury, leaving the Spanish club light on firepower.

But with Chelsea interested in Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, Giroud could now end up staying in London.

Roy Hodgson is desperate for some quality up front with Jordan Ayew the scorer of just three goals in 15 Premier League appearances this season.
