Giroud has been tipped to leave Stamford Bridge in January in the hunt for more regular playing opportunities ahead of the European Championships next summer.
The 34-year-old is reportedly on the radar of Antonio Conte at Inter Milan, with the latest from Calciomercato suggesting the former Blues boss has an “obsession" with signing a physical centre forward in the mould of Giroud.
Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik, another target that fits the billing, has also been linked with a San Siro switch. The Poland international is out of contract next summer and is widely expected to leave in January having fallen out of favour at the Serie A outfit.
Tottenham and West Ham will surely be keeping a close eye on developments in Italy, however, having both been linked with Giroud in the past few days.
