Marseille maintain contact with Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud

Olympique Marseille are maintaining contact with the minders of Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud.

Giroud has so far resisted Marseille's attempts to bring him back to France since winning this summer's World Cup.

OM are focusing on other targets as they seek a centre-forward signing this month, however Le 10 Sport says they also remain in contact with Giroud.

If OM cannot find a new striker addition, they will try again to convince Giroud in the final days of the summer market.

The French giants are counting on Giroud being ignored by Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri in the coming games to convince him it is time to move.
