Chelsea are handed more options to do away with Oliver Giroud who has spent most times of this season on the bench as Crystal Palace join Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid in the hunt for the Frenchman.
Olivier Giroud is clearly not happy at Stamford Bridge as Alvaro Morata’s departure only brought him nothing has seen him been benched with the arrival of Tammy Abraham.
The new manager at Stamford Bridge is clearly not a fan of the former Arsenal man who was brought to Stamford Bridge by current Inter Milan manager when the Italian was still in charge of the
Blues before handing over to Maurizio Sarri.
Chances exist that Conte is going to fire up for the reunion of the striker he forgot in London considering the fact that Barcelona are already showing undeniable interest in Lautaro Martinez who has managed to combine with Romelu Lukaku to provide a goal-scoring Inter Milan.

Conte also wants to bring competition to the team even if Lautaro doesn’t leave come winter and Olivier Giroud is currently the most feasible option to apply, with low cost as well.
The 33-year-old has only netted 1 goal for Chelsea this season which came from their Super Cup defeat against Liverpool. 5 appearances in the Premier League, 1 Champions League game and that of the Super Cup which he scored his only club goal so far.
Atletico Madrid is also another figure on the striker’s radar with Diego Costa out until February, Diego Simeone needs more force in the front-line which Alvaro Morata clearly can’t handle alone.
Simeone is reportedly planning to return to London for another deal with Chelsea after successfully sealing Morata’s and this would mean reuniting the Spaniard with his former teammate, Olivier Giroud.
Chelsea were slammed with a transfer ban which has currently been lifted and that clearly means the exit door has widened for players such as Olivier Giroud, Pedro and possibly Ross Barkley due to Frank Lampard’s love for young bloods.
Names have already been stated when you talk about incoming players and Crystal Palace winger, Wilfred Zaha seems to be the most arrayed among these names which also includes Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
Although Frank Lampard has made it clear that halving the transfer ban for his side doesn’t mean he’s going to reshuffle the squad. The squad is expected to remain as it is, but much competition is going to arrive with the few new players who are going to pen down a contract.
The manager at Selhurst Park Stadium, Roy Hodgson really doesn’t want to let go of Zaha considering the player’s consistent form over the past seasons but he clearly can’t hold Zaha against his will.
The 72-year-old has a weak Central Forward and appears to have decided to take advantage of Chelsea’s interest for Zaha by making his interest on Olivier Giroud known.
Jordan Ayew is not living up to expectations at the front-line as an Eagle which has retard the number of goals Crystal Palace has netted so far this season.
A possibility of a swap deal happening between the two London based clubs exists and Giroud might likely remain in London than flying to Italy to reunite with the manager who brought him from Arsenal nor Spain where he would be a powerhouse when he reunites with former teammate, Alvaro Morata.
