Inter coach Antonio Conte is incredibly keen to bring unhappy Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud to the Nerazzurri as a back-up for former Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku, according to a report from French broadcaster TF1 confirms.
The report details how the 50-year-old Italian believes the 33-year-old Frenchman would be the ideal back-up for Lukaku, filling a similar role and allowing Conte to rest the 26-year-old Belgian.
This would allow Conte more squad options and give him more ability to rotate players rather than using the same selection each game.
Furthermore, Giroud is unhappy at Chelsea and will meet with his entourage over the next few days to discuss his future, the report continues.
The 33-year-old French striker has only made six appearances across all competitions this season for the South London club, due to the break-out performances of young English striker Tammy Abraham.
Due to Giroud’s lack of playing time, he is thinking of moving away from the Blues in order to play enough minutes to be brought along to next summer’s European Championships, the report adds.
