Chelsea fans react as Tottenham and West Ham reportedly eye their £18m star

West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly battling Inter Milan and other clubs in the race to sign Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud, with the player in the final year of his contract – and Chelsea supporters have reacted on Twitter.

Giroud, 34, has been in decent form for Chelsea – despite being given a lack of game time by Frank Lampard. The odd substitute appearance here, the rare cup game there, Giroud has still managed to show his quality and maintain a place with France.

In eight outings, he has scored twice – scoring a crucial Champions League winner against Rennes on Tuesday night, as well as one against Barnsley in the Carabao Cup. The £18million (Telegraph) signing has also netted five goals for France this season.

However, Giroud could be looking at January for a potential move. He is desperate to cement his place in France’s Euro 2021 squad, and has entered the last 12 months of his £110,000-a-week (Spotrac) deal – and a move could help him do that.

CalcioMercato claim that West Ham, Spurs and Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan are all interested in raiding Chelsea for Giroud – as are PSG and David Beckham’s Inter Miami, who have already made big-money moves for Blaise Matuidi and Gonzalo Higuain.

Chelsea supporters reacted to the news that Spurs, West Ham and other clubs are reportedly interested in signing Giroud in the coming week – and while some are happy to see him leave, others are against a move – or at least to a specific club.
