According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has agreed a deal to join Inter Milan in January.

Giroud has played just 211 minutes of football for Chelsea so far this season and the France international has been vocal about his frustration at a lack of opportunities under Frank Lampard.

Lampard has preferred Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi as his striking options.

Giroud worked under Antonio Conte at Chelsea and the striker is reportedly happy to reunite with Conte at Inter Milan.

Chelsea are reportedly happy to let Giroud leave in January but will demand a transfer fee of €7m.

Giroud joined Chelsea from Arsenal for £15.3m in January 2018 and has scored 19 goals in 69 appearances for the Blues.
