West Ham United are looking to bring in a forward next month and Chelsea star Olivier Giroud is believed to be on their wish list.
According to Mirror, West Ham United will look to cash in on players like Andriy Yarmolenko and bring in a suitable scorer when the transfer window reopens in January.
Olivier Giroud isn’t a regular Chelsea starter, but he has shown his quality during his cameos with the Blues so far this season. He has eight goals in 14 appearances for Chelsea so far this season.
The Frenchman could prove to be a short-term quality addition to West Ham United’s attack and it remains to be seen if the Hammers can pull off the transfer next month.
Sebastien Haller’s tastes have been quite disappointing since they moved to the London club and West Ham needs someone who can lead their attack week after week.
In recent months, Olivier Giroud’s agent hit Frank Lampard due to his client’s lack of playing time at Stamford Bridge and it will be interesting to see if West Ham United’s interest can tempt the French international to move on.
With the arrival of the European Championship next summer, Giroud wants to play regularly so that he can cement his place in the French national team.
West Ham United can certainly provide you with the platform to play first-team football on a regular basis and the club hierarchy is determined to back David Moyes in the transfer market.
Given his contract status at Stamford Bridge, Olivier Giroud is unlikely to cost much and West Ham United could sign him for a reasonable fee next month.
The French international will be a free agent in the summer of 2021 and therefore it would be prudent for Chelsea to take advantage of him in January rather than lose him in a free transfer at the end of the season.
