Tony Cascarino says Liverpool should look at signing Chelsea's Olivier Giroud
Former Chelsea and Celtic striker, Tony Cascarino, believes Liverpool should consider signing Olivier Giroud this summer if he leaves Chelsea for nothing.
The 35-year-old once again grabbed headlines this week with a stunning overhead kick in the Champions League. Giroud, who won the World Cup with France in 2018, has continually shone for the Blues this term.
It’s been impressive stuff from the former Arsenal man. Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner were tipped to keep Giroud out. But, ever the professional, he has kept bouncing back and showing his class.
And speaking to Talksport, Tony Cascarino claims Liverpool should consider moving for the Chelsea man this summer.
“I would say he is the best in the world of the most underrated players. There are a good few that are underrated and he’s at the top of the list,” Cascarino said.
“Absolutely (he would sign him for Liverpool). I think there are very few players that can do the Roberto Firmino role. Look, at 35 years old, he’d do a great job. . That goal against Atletico is a No.10 goal, it’s a Roberto Baggio type of goal. I’ve seen Giroud do that four or five times in his career.”

Giroud might not be able to play the high pressing and full energy and heavy metal football Jurgen Klopp can demand. But in terms of something different up top, he certainly brings that.
Height, experience, a knack of scoring big goals. Giroud has it all in the locker and despite his age, still looks as fit as a fiddle.
Chelsea would be wise to tie him down in all honesty. But if he does leave, Liverpool would be wise to be sniffing around.
