AC Milan could make head coach Stefano Pioli very happy in January or the summer by securing the renewal of Olivier Giroud whilst also signing a new striker, a report claims.
As has been reported by Calciomercato.it, the Rossoneri are very confident that Giroud will be extending his stay at the club very soon given his current contract is going to expire at the end of this season.
The Frenchman will soon hold talks with the club but there are no serious fears that an agreement will not be found.
He can then be provided with adequate cover as the club looks to sign a new striker to challenge him for the starting place in attack.
There are plenty of potential names being discussed from Lois Openda to Jonathan David and then Roland Kolo Muani to Patrick Schick. A move of this nature may need to wait until the summer for financial reasons.
