Italian club leading race to sign €15m-rated Chelsea striker

Inter Milan chief executive Beppe Marotta has confirmed the club’s interest in sealing transfer moves for Chelsea duo Olivier Giroud and Victor Moses.

The dup don’t look likely to have any future at London club, with France international barely getting a look-in under coach Frank Lampard since he took over this campaign, while Victor is out on loan at Fenerbahce.

Both are quality footballers, though, so could still do a job for a big club in Europe, with former Blues coach Antonio Conte perhaps keen on a link-up with two of his former footballers.

Marotta has been quoted on Sky Sports as confirming his pursuit of these footballers, so now it only stays to be seen if something can be agreed before the end of winter. “Moses? He is a candidate,” Marotta said. On Giroud, he added: “I do not deny that we spoke with Giroud’s entourage, and now we will make the right assessment.”

London club supporters will also be hoping their club can get some footballers in this winter, with the Blues surely far too quiet on that front so far this month despite a lack of depth in their youthful squad and some unconvincing recent form.

Inter Milan have excellent consequences in the Serie A this campaign as they are in a second place in the table. The Nerazzurri signed several footballers during the summer transfer window like Diego Godin from Atletico Madrid, Nicolo Barella from Cagliari, Stefano Sensi from Sassuolo and Romelu Lukaku from Man United.
