11pm Chelsea transfer news LIVE: Declan Rice LATEST, Giroud ‘set to stay’, Lampard job ‘at risk’, Donnarumma talks


Olivier Giroud is tipped to stay at Chelsea this month despite interest from Juventus and Inter Milan.

Goal claim the France striker, 34, will see out the last six months of his Stamford Bridge contract after bagging nine goals in 15 games this term.

Inter boss Antonio Conte has long been a fan, having signed Giroud for Chelsea from Arsenal in 2018.

And Italian champions Juventus are said to have joined the race for Giroud’s signature after slipping to fifth in the Serie A table.

But Giroud told RMC Sport: “My career, in the short term, I see it at Chelsea.

“Now, we know things go quickly in football, both in good and bad ways. I want to keep my head clear and focus on the pitch.

“I’m coming to the end of my contract at Chelsea in June, even if we have the option of another year.

“We’ll go over things at the end of the year. But, once again, I have the ambition of winning something with Chelsea this season because I have a lot of hope due to the quality of our squad.”
