Chelsea at crossroad with Giroud


English Premier League outfit are feared to part ways with France international striker Olivier Giroud in the summer transfer window.

The 33-year-old has been receiving interest from a number of clubs and the latest from Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan seems irresistible for a new challenge.

The decision to let go of Olivier Giroud or keep him has been a difficult one to make for Chelsea because of a number of factors surrounding the team.

While Chelsea can boast of new additions of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech to boost their attack, analysis hints that the experience of the former Arsenal striker is still needed at the club, knowing his contribution at the moment. He could also be an option for the team.

Inter Milan also seek to land Emerson Palmieri in the coming summer transfer window with the player reportedly ready to hand his club a transfer request because he can no longer boast of a starting role under manager Frank Lampard.

Tottenham and West Ham United are also keen on the signature of Emerson Palmieri and will compete with Inter Milan but Italian Serie A outfit is his preferred destination because of his wish to work with Antonio Conte.
