Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud wants to move to Tottenham this month – but the former Arsenal striker is concerned that the Blues will block any move to their top-four rivals, according to the Evening Standard.

Reliable journalists Di Marzio and Fabrizio Romano broke the news on Tuesday evening – suggesting that Spurs were interested in bringing the French striker to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – and Jose Mourinho would be keen on signing Giroud.

Mourinho has been in desperate need of a striker to replace the injured Harry Kane and has been heavily linked with AC Milan frontman Krzysztof Piatek, although he looks to have missed out on the Polish striker after BILD Sport suggested that he’s expected to sign for  Bundesliga outfit Hertha Berlin before Friday’s deadline.

And now the Standard are reporting that Giroud’s previous connections with Spurs’ north London rivals Arsenal would not bother him – with the World Cup winner in desperate need of first-team football to force his way into the French squad for this summer’s European Championships having started just two Premier League games under Frank Lampard this season.

Giroud wants to remain in London, but with two out of three parties keen on the deal, it’s a case of whether the Blues will let the 33-year-old move across the capital this January.

Would you be happy with Giroud? Let us know in the comments below.



  1. Sure that would be a good transfer. I’m pretty sure that he will do a better performance in Tttenham during Harry Kane injury time and will be fit to Jose Mrounho plan to replace the striker Harry Kane. He’s a world cup straker and sure he has a lots of experience. Hope to get him playing in Tottenham.

    • The deal make sense, you dont make sense. He is PE. Why overpay due to our need when we can address the issue in the summer. Jose needs to send a clear message the Kane, the club is bigger than him. We are going get a striker that can compete with or play ipfront with him. And more over, we cannot afford 3 injury spell per year feom our front man and eoxected to challenge for top honors.
