Experienced Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has agreed on a contract with Italian Serie A leaders Inter Milan whom the Frenchman is expected to join before the winter transfer window ends at the end of this month.
It was disclosed that the Frenchman has agreed on a two-and-a-half-year deal with Inter Milan until the end of the 2021/22 season but Nerazzuri are yet to agree a transfer fee with Chelsea for Giroud.
Inter Milan and Chelsea are still continuing talks so as to agree on a transfer fee for Giroud who has just six months left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge.

Olivier Giroud is the third choice striker at Chelsea and he has been reduced to just a handful of appearances since new manager Frank Lampard took the managerial job at Stamford Bridge.
He has scored 78 goals and added 38 assists in 225 appearances in the Premier League.
Giroud wants more playing time to prepare him for the upcoming 2020 European Championships as the first choice striker with the French national team.
He has scored 39 goals for France and the 33-year-old played an important role as his country won their second FIFA World Cup title in Russia in 2018.
