Honestly, until he retires, a January transfer window won’t feel fully complete unless Olivier Giroud is involved one way or another.

The Frenchman, currently contracted to Chelsea, is a regular in the mid-season shopping period, and this year most likely won’t be any different.

Pushed to one side by Frank Lampard early on in the 2019-20 season, Giroud looked almost certain to leave last January, only for his manager to eventually promise him games (which he kept), allowing the veteran to once again showcase his skills.

However, the last transfer window saw Chelsea spend a considerable amount on Timo Werner, another forward, which has limited minutes for the France international, who finds himself with 30 minutes of Premier League action to his name so far.

This is unlikely to sit well with Giroud, who wants to play as much as possible ahead of next summer’s Euros, and the option of Inter could reappear in the next few months.

That’s what Corriere dello Sport suggest on Wednesday, claiming the Serie A side could turn their attention once more to the 34-year-old, who will be out of contract come the end of the season.

It’s believed in Italy that Inter are looking for a fourth goalscorer, with Antonio Conte yet to fully trust Andrea Pinamonti with the responsibility.

It seems to only be speculation at this time, but it’s believable to say the least, as the Italian manager is a big fan of what Giroud can do, and if he can get him for cheap, then it certainly would be a transfer that pleases the majority of parties involved.
