By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have reached an agreement with both Chelsea and Olivier Giroud over the transfer of the striker to Italy, a report claims.

It has been well documented that the Rossoneri are in the market for a new striker who can be the deputy to Zlatan Ibrahimovic given the Swede will turn 40 before the end of the year and has struggled with injury problems.

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, Milan have reached an agreement with Chelsea for Giroud. The Rossoneri will pay Chelsea a figure of €1m plus €1m in bonuses given that they renewed his contract until 2022, meaning they were able to command a fee.

A two-year contract worth €3.5m net per year plus bonuses is ready for the French centre-forward. Only medical examinations, and signatures are missing and then the former Arsenal man is ready to become a new Milan player and try Serie A for the first time.
