Olivier Giroud turns down new Chelsea contract offer

Olivier Giroud has turned down a new contract offer from Chelsea.

The French striker's current deal expires this summer and a number of clubs from around Europe are supposedly interested in signing up the 33-year-old.

The World Cup winner agreed personal terms with Inter Milan before Chelsea pulled the plug after failing to secure a replacement.

And now reports from Italy claim Giroud is closing in on a move to the San Siro once again after rejecting a new contract proposal from Chelsea.

Tuttosport report that new contacts have been made between the Blues and Giroud's entourage, with an offer of a one-year extension tabled.
