Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Tuesday, January 19.
Tuesday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:
Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has reportedly been offered to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the January transfer window.
Giroud has been linked with several clubs in recent times after failing to nail down a regular starting spot in Frank Lampard's side.
According to Defensa Central, Giroud is keen to leave Stamford Bridge when his contract expires at the end of this season and his agent is working behind the scenes to find his client a new club, with Real Madrid one club he has enquired to.
Real Madrid are unlikely to pursue a deal for the 34-year-old as they are not looking to sign a striker this month, even after allowing Luka Jovic to return to Eintracht Frankfurt earlier in the window.
Los Blancos would prefer to wait until the summer and target a younger talent such as Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe or Borussia Dortmund's Erling Braut Haaland.
Giroud, who joined the Blues from rivals Arsenal in January 2018, has scored nine times in 17 appearances in all competitions this campaign.
Chelsea are reportedly considering a club-record move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland at the end of the season.
The Blues spent more than £120m on new recruits in 2020, a large amount of that going on Timo Werner to lead their line.
However, the Germany international has struggled in his first season at Stamford Bridge, scoring nine goals in 27 appearances in all competitions.
According to The Athletic, Chelsea may bring in a new striker ahead of 2021-22, with prolific Dortmund marksman Haaland top of their wishlist.
The 20-year-old is arguably the most sought-after youngster in world football after scoring 35 goals in 35 appearances for BVB since joining a year ago.
Chelsea will face competition from a number of other clubs, though, as Real Madrid, Barcelona and domestic rivals Manchester United are all said to be interested.
The West London outfit's current record transfer is Kai Havertz, who could cost up to £72m with add-ons included.
