Tottenham remain interested in signing Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud this summer, according to the Express.
The Frenchman, who recently extended his Blues contract by 12 months, was heavily linked with a move across London back January – with Tottenham in desperate need of someone to replace the injured Harry Kane – but Chelsea were reluctant to sell to one of their top-four rivals.
Giroud ended up staying at Stamford Bridge and then less than four weeks later, he came back to haunt Spurs by scoring his first Premier League goal of the season in a crucial 2-1 victory for Frank Lampard’s men in the race for Champions League football.
That appearance against Jose Mourinho’s side was one of six that the Frenchman has made since the January, but the expected arrival of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig looks to have put an end to the 33-year-old’s Chelsea career.
And despite Chelsea not interested in selling to their rivals earlier this year, Mourinho is still hoping to convince the 2018 World Cup winning forward to sign for Tottenham – especially with Giroud being settled in London, having been here since joining Arsenal in 2012.
The report suggests that as many as five clubs are keen on signing the ex-Arsenal man, including Spurs’ Premier League counterparts West Ham and Crystal Palace.
