Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud emerges as a transfer target for Inter Milan, according to a report.

Inter Milan are reportedly weighing up a January move for Chelsea centre-forward Olivier Giroud.

The France international, who will see his current deal at Stamford Bridge expire next summer, has not featured for the Blues in the Premier League since the end of August.

The 33-year-old has not even made the bench for Chelsea's last three league fixtures, and there have been suggestions that he could leave in a cut-price deal during the January transfer window.

According to Tuttosport, Inter are considering a mid-season swoop for the 2018 World Cup winner after learning that Alexis Sanchez is facing a period on the sidelines with an ankle injury.

The Chile international is due to meet with a specialist on Wednesday to determine the best course of action for the problem which he picked up on international duty.

There have been suggestions that the on-loan Manchester United forward could require surgery to correct the issue, which could rule the 30-year-old out of action until 2020.
