Having missed out on the signing of Erling Haaland, Juventus are now directing their attention toward Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud according to a report in today’s print edition of Milan based newspaper Corriere della Sera.
Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri knows the veteran Frenchman well having managed him in his single season in charge of the Premier League side.
Giroud, who has also drawn links to Inter, has lost his place in the team this season and seemingly wants out of Chelsea to somewhere he can play more regularly in order to give him a chance at making France’s squad for EURO 2020.
Giroud is not Inter’s first option though, the report goes on to state. Inter manager Antonio Conte really likes the idea of landing Napoli’s Fernando Llorente, who could be acquired in a swap deal with Matteo Politano heading the otherway.
Inter’s priority in January is ultimately signing a new midfielder and Barcelona’s Arturo Vidal is believed to be the Nerazzurri’s primary target.
