Tottenham are interested in signing former Arsenal and current Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud, according to several sources – including reliable journalists Di Marzio and Fabrizio Romano.

Jose Mourinho has been in desperate need of a striker to replace the injured Harry Kane, who isn’t expected to return from a hamstring problem until early April – and the Portuguese is reportedly keen on bringing the 33-year-old to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Giroud has been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan this January after making just two Premier League starts since the arrival of Frank Lampard – playing just 190 minutes in total, with the last of those coming in the 1-0 defeat to West Ham back in late November.

The French World Cup winner has scored just once in seven appearances in all competitions this season – against Liverpool in the Super Cup – but was excellent in last seasons Europa League, finishing as the top goalscorer with 11 goals as Blues defeated Arsenal 4-1 in the final.

The reports are suggesting that Tottenham have offered the 33-year-old an 18-month deal, although it looks from the outside that a deal would be extremely difficult to get over the line – especially giving Spurs’ previous transfer business with Chelsea and Roman Abramovich.
