Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan are plotting a January transfer for Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud who has found playing time hard to come by since Frank Lampard was appointed the Blues’ manager this summer.

According to the Daily Express, Inter Milan manager, Antonio Conte wants to sign Giroud when the transfer market is opened again in January for a knockdown fee of around £6m.

Olivier Giroud has a little over six months left on his contract at Chelsea and the French World Cup winner is not ready to wait for his contract to run down next summer.

The French striker joined Chelsea from London rivals Arsenal at the start of last year in a deal reported to be around £18m.

He signed an 18-month Chelsea deal until this summer when he completed his transfer from Arsenal to Stamford Bridge before his Blues deal was extended by one year in the summer.

Giroud was an integral part of the Chelsea team that won the Europa League last season by beating former club Arsenal in the final and even scored one of the goals but the Frenchman has had to make do with a reduced role under new manager Frank Lampard.
