AC Milan look set to bolster their attacking department with the signing of experienced striker Olivier Giroud, according to reports.
Sky (via MilanNews) are reporting that the Rossoneri are serious for Giroud, so much so that in the next few days a meeting is planned between the Milan management and the Frenchman’s entourage to talk about the potential operation.
The centre-forward is on a contract which is about to expire with Chelsea and therefore he would land in Italy on a free transfer. It has been rumoured for weeks that Milan are looking to replace Mario Mandzukic with a more physically reliable player, in order to give some much-needed support to the injury prone Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
According to journalist Ekrem Konur meanwhile, Giroud to Milan is a done deal and the 34-year-old will earn €7m net over a two-year contract, therefore penning a deal worth €3.5m per season.
