?An agreement is almost in place to see Olivier Giroud leave Chelsea this January and link up with former boss Antonio Conte at Inter.

However, with the European Championships coming up this month, Giroud was unwilling to risk losing his place in the side and the move will benefit all parties involved.

?Chelsea themselves are also on the lookout for a striker this window, with pursuits of Moussa Dembele and Timo Werner mentioned heavily, although both those deals have hit snags in recent weeks.

The Italian tactician signed Giroud from Arsenal on the final day of the winter window in 2018 on an 18-month deal, with the Frenchman going on to score 19 goals across 70 appearances in west London.

However, this season the striker has been limited to just seven outings across all competitions, with Frank Lampard favouring the likes of Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi as his number nine.

Despite a lack of game time under Lampard, and indeed Maurizio Sarri before him, Giroud is still Didier Deschamps' first-choice striker with the French national team.

RMC Sport's ?Mohamed Bouhafsi  claims that an agreement between both clubs has not yet fully  been concluded, as the Frenchman's agent flies to Milan on Thursday to fine tune the details.
