Inter will try and complete a deal for Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud before the January transfer window slams shut tonight according to a report in today’s print edition of Corriere della Sera.
Inter manager Antonio Conte has convinced club management to pursue a last minute deal for the striker, who also has interest in his services from Lazio and Tottenham Hotspur.
Giroud, as per various reports in the media, has agreed personal terms with Inter for a few weeks now and his exit from Chelsea is understood to be dependent on them bringing in a replacement.
In the event Inter are unable to sign Giroud, they have a back-up plan in mind in Leicester City owned Islam Slimani, who is currently out on loan at Ligue 1 side Monaco, the report from the Milan based newspaper continues.
In 14 appearances across all competitions this season, the 31-year-old Algerian international has netted seven goals and tallied seven assists.
