Euro race heats up for unsettled Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud

The race for unsettled Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is heating up.

Off contract in June and struggling to break into manager Frank Lampard's starting line-up, Giroud is considering his options.

And it's emerged Chelsea are willing to sell in January - rather than allow the World Cup winner to run down his contract.

Lyon are keen, as are Crystal Palace and West Ham in England.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport says Inter Milan have also come forward, where former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is a fan. Giroud would arrive as competition for Romelu Lukaku in Conte's attack.
