Lyon especially want to sign £120,000-a-week Chelsea centre-forward

Lyon keen on signing Chelsea centre-forward Olivier Giroud and set to battle with Barcelona and Marseille for the player. Les Gones have problems in the front-line as Mariano Diaz moved to Real Madrid, Moussa Dembele is in bad form and their replacement is necessary.

France international is the best choice in this situation as he also wants to get regular game time and ready to leave the London club.

Bruno Génésio will do everything to add him during this winter transfer window. Blaugrana and Olympians also interested to sign him and there will be a real battle for the footballer. His price could increase and become much more.

The 32-year-old striker joined the Blues from Arsenal last January with a €17m deal. He is one of the best centre-forwards in Premier League and a key figure for the club.

In this campaign, the French attacker already played 27 matches, scored 5 goals and made 5 assists in all competition.

This is an impressive result and he can improve his consequences if he gets a regular place in starting line-up. Giroud is contracted with Chelsea until 2019 and his release clause is around €20m.

He is a regular member of the Les Bleus squad and also helped them to win the 2018 World Cup which is already a big success for the player.
