According to Soccer Link, French club Olympique Lyon are interested in Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud.

The Ligue 1 club will reportedly make a move for the 33 year old in January if Lyon striker Moussa Dembele joins Manchester United in January.

Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi are ahead of Giroud in the pecking order at Chelsea under Frank Lampard. Giroud has played just 211 minutes in 6 games across all competitions.

Crystal Palace, Inter Milan, Everton and AC Milan have all been linked with Giroud ahead of the January transfer window.

Giroud’s current contract at Chelsea expires next summer and the Blues reportedly have an option to extend it for a further year.
