Inter will push to sign Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud if Napoli won’t give up Spanish forward Fernando Llorente, according to a report from yesterday’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Corriere della Sera.
The report details how the Nerazzurri are still looking for a reinforcement in the attacking department, even more relevant now considering the imminent departure of Italian striker Matteo Politano, who is set to move down to the Partenopei. If Napoli continue the block the idea of Llorente by Monday, Inter CEO Beppe Marotta will then start to push for the 33-year-old Frenchman, whose contract expires with the West London club in June.
Giroud has struggled for playing time in London with the Blues, the report continues. Coach Frank Lampard has preferred to deploy English starlet Tammy Abraham, with Belgian forward Michy Batshuayi filling in as backup. The Frenchman has failed to appear for the club in the league since the end of November.
