Crystal Palace reportedly want to sign Olivier Giroud from Chelsea in the January transfer window.

The French centre-forward is struggling for minutes at Stamford Bridge, playing just 100 minutes of Premier League football so far this season.

New Blues boss Frank Lampard has preferred to use Tammy Abraham up front, with Michy Batshuayi beginning to establish himself as the next striker in line.

As a result, Palace have targeted the out-of-favour Chelsea forward as a marquee winter addition, according to The Sun.

Lampard is believed to want the 33-year-old to stay as he provides a different dimension but could be persuaded to allow the forward to leave in search of regular minutes for a fee of around £3m.

Inter Milan are also thought to be interested in a loan move, but a permanent switch within London could prove a more attractive proposition.
