The winter transfer window did not go as planned for Olivier Giroud. When he was hoping to leave Chelsea and find a club to guarantee him more playing time, Tammy Abraham’s injury in the last days of January finally forced him to stay with the Blues. If the tri-color world champion took advantage of the unavailability of the young English international to find playing time, it is still decided to leave the London club.
At the end of the contract next June, the former Grenoblois, who must not be mistaken in his choice if he wants to participate in Euro 2021, knows he is in a position of strength. What is more with courtiers who are not lacking. Like last winter, the native of Chambery is notably on the shelves of two Italian cadors, theInter Milan and the Lazio Rome. But two months after staying in the water despite extensive discussions with the two clubs, Olivier Giroud intends to set his conditions.
To believe Tuttosport, his main request concerns the duration of his new lease. Because if the French international has a preference for the track leading to Inter Milan, in particular because of the presence on the bench of Antonio Conte, with whom he has already worked at Chelsea, the two years of contract offered by the Nerazzurri do not satisfy him. Especially since Lazio, despite its 33 years, is willing to offer it a three-year lease, with certainly less favorable financial conditions. According to the transalpine daily, Olivier Giroud is about to fold the Lombard club, which is now considering offering him a two-year contract with an optional third.
