Olivier Giroud’s future is likely to be answered in the near future. The French National Team striker is claimed to have determined, which club will be his destination in the transfer market this winter. Yes the club named Tottenham Hotspur.
Actually, Giroud has often been rumored to leave Chelsea since the transfer market last summer. The attacker is unhappy with manager Frank Lampard’s decision to make him the third choice on the front line, after Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi.
After failing to move the club last summer, Giroud firmly plans to leave this winter. So far there are two rumored clubs interested in recruiting Giroud, namely Inter Milan and Tottenham Hotspur.
Inter Milan are interested because of a request from their manager, Antonio Conte. While Tottenham Hotspur does need new ammunition on the front lines following the injury suffered by Harry Kane. Sky Italia claims that Giroud has made his choice. He will join the north London club.
The same report claims that Giroud prefers to stay in the Premier League because Inter Milan do not seem serious in bringing it. When in fact the player wants to move closer to the San Siro, because of the presence of his former coach, Antonio Conte.
However, until the transfer window closes, there is no concrete bid from the Nerrazurri camp. This makes Giroud feel manipulated by Italian Serie A giants. While Tottenham Hotspuir on the one hand showed a serious effort.
Indeed, Spurs are in a front-line crisis. Harry Kane certainly pulled over for three months because of a severe injury. No doubt, Giroud services are needed. The former Arsenal claimed a guarantee that would be the main striker for The Lillywhites until Kane recovered from injury.
Of course, Giroud is very interested in moving closer to White Hart Lane, if indeed the guarantee is more playing minutes. Because, it is a requirement of the French national team coach, Didier Deschamps to get a call to play in the upcoming 2020 Euro Cup.
Spurs are currently believed to be holding intense talks with Chelsea. An agreement was made to be reached before the transfer market was closed.
