Giroud 'alerts Milan clubs'

Serie A target Olivier Giroud is so keen to leave Chelsea in January that it is reported he has already begun plotting his departure from the club.

The World Cup winner continues to be linked to Inter, where he would reunite with coach Antonio Conte, while Milan have also been mentioned as possible suitors.

Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi have moved above Giroud in the Chelsea pecking order this season, with the European Championship just months away.

L’Equipe now reports the 33-year-old is stepping up the chase for a new team this winter.

However, the newspaper also warns he might struggle to get the minutes he so craves under Conte.

Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez have really hit the ground running this season, so the Frenchman would again have to play second fiddle.

Alexis Sanchez is also set to return from a long-term injury in January and may battle his way back into the first team.
