Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund are both reportedly interested in signing out-of-favour Chelsea centre forward Olivier Giroud.

Inter boss Antonio Conte is keen to add the Blues’ Frenchman to his squad as the Milanese outfit chase silverware this term, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Mirror also claim that the Chelsea man is in Borussia Dortmund’s sights.

The Frenchman is a bit-part player at Stamford Bridge at the moment with Tammy Abraham firmly now the club’s first-choice striker.

Giroud’s contract with the West London giants is due to end at the conclusion of the current season and so Chelsea may be open to selling him in January in order to gain a fee for him, rather than just let him leave for free six months later.

Both Inter and Dortmund are playing in the Champions League this season and a move to either the San Siro or Signal Iduna Park may well appeal to the Blues attacker.

A move away from Chelsea will suit the Frenchman at this stage of his career.

Switching to a club that can offer him more regular first-team action would make sense as he plans to play in the 2020 European Championships.

For Chelsea, they also have Michy Batshuayi as back-up to Abraham and as such the sale of Giroud in January could well be a possibility.
