Milan are looking for a striker on the market and have been heavily linked with Olivier Giroud in the last few weeks. The negotiations haven’t proceeded as fast as expected, but there could now be some movement.
France got knocked out of the Euros last night as they lost to Switzerland on penalties, which was a boost for Milan. According to Pietro Mazzara of MilanNews, the Rossoneri will now be able to accelerate their pursuit of Giroud.
In order to keep the striker calm, the parties had all agreed to take it slow during the Euros but now the window has opened. Giroud still has to free himself for Chelsea, though, and he will leave this up to his entourage.
Important developments are expected in the next two weeks, also because the Frenchman will be on holiday, but he already has an agreement with Milan. The latter have put €4m per year on the table for a period of two years.
