Inter Milan coach Conte 'obsessed' about Chelsea striker Giroud

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte is demanding a centre-forward signing be made in January - with Chelsea's Olivier Giroud the priority.

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.
