Juventus coach Pirlo targeting Chelsea striker Giroud

Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo still admires Olivier Giroud, but the Italian club are not prioritising his transfer this summer.

The Frenchman is expect to depart Stamford Bridge, having fallen down the pecking order under Thomas Tuchel.

Giroud is out of contract in 2022, so Chelsea are expected to cash in when the transfer window re-opens.

Calciomercato says Juve have other priorities than Giroud after a poor season by their impeccable standards.

That does not mean that a deal will not be completed for the 35-year-old, who is still highly rated by Pirlo.
