Inter Milan lining up double raid on Chelsea this summer

Inter Milan are lining up a double raid on Chelsea this summer.

The Daily Mail says Inter retain an interest in signing Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud as well as his club mate Emerson Palmieri.

The Italians wanted Giroud in January and will make a fresh offer even though the 33-year old has signed a contract extension.

Inter have still to be bid for Palmieri but he no longer figures in Frank Lampard's plans with Chelsea keen to bring in a new left-back. Leicester City's Ben Chilwell is an option but they face competition from Manchester City.

Chelsea target Kai Havertz wants his club Bayer Leverkusen to allow him to move to Stamford Bridge this summer but the Germans' £90m valuation remains a major obstacle.
