Tottenham boss Mourinho eyeing Chelsea striker Giroud

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is eyeing Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud.

Giroud signed a new deal last month, but could still move on this summer after Chelsea's swoop for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

The Daily Express says Spurs manager Mourinho remains a fan of the former Arsenal centre forward he tried to sign in January - but Chelsea would be reluctant to sell to their rivals.

Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is thought also still keen on a deal.

Giroud, 33, has stated that he could have left Chelsea in January, but stayed after being promised games by manager Frank Lampard, and getting them before the COVID-19 crisis brought football to a halt.

But even though the Frenchman only signed his new £110,000 a week deal last month, there is still speculation that he could be sold on - because now Chelsea can command a fee of around £7m.
