Roma targeting Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud

AS Roma are targeting Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud.

Corriere dello Sport says the Frenchman is wanted on loan as a replacement for Edin Dzeko, who has been axed by boss Paulo Fonseca.

Dzeko rejected an approach from West Ham this week.

But Roma are unsure if they can negotiate a deal, temporary or permanent, with Chelsea following the appointment of Thomas Tuchel.

The German is yet to indicate if Giroud is part of his plans for the rest of the season.
