Chelsea fans react to reports club want Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud

Chelsea have been linked to numerous strikers this month, but so far Antonio Conte has failed to bring in a new face.

The speculation suggests that the Italian coach is looking for a back-up forward to Alvaro Morata.

According to theย Daily Mail, Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is next on the list, but only if they fail to land another target.

The Blues are believed to be interesting in bringing in former Manchester City star Edin Dzeko from Roma, but the publication claims that a deal is yet to be reached.

Following the summer arrival of Alexandre Lacazette at Arsenal, Giroud dropped further down the pecking order.

This season he has been restricted to just one start in the Premier League, and instead has had to settle for 14 cameo appearances.

Most of the Frenchman’s game time has been in the Europa League, in which he has started six games.

In total, Giroud has scored seven goals in all competitions, and now Chelsea fans are deliberating whether or not the 31-year-old would thrive at Stamford Bridge.
