Chelsea outcast agrees Juventus switch


Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has agreed personal terms with Juventus, claims Gianluca Di Marzio.


The Old Lady are on the market for a new striker and have turned their attention to Giroud after setbacks in discussions for other targets.


Luis Suarez has agreed to join Juventus but is still waiting to find a resolution to terminate his contract with Barcelona.


Andrea Pirlo's side have reportedly even agreed terms on a two-year deal with Giroud and must now agree a fee with Chelsea.


Giroud finished the 2019/20 campaign as Chelsea's main striker but is likely to enter the campaign as third choice at Stamford Bridge.

The France international may even be down to fourth in the pecking order with summer signing Kai Havertz able to play as a striker if required.


However, Frank Lampard knows the qualities Giroud brings to the table and Chelsea have just loaned Michy Batshuayi to Crystal Palace for the season.


Giroud finished last season with eight goals despite only starting 12 of his 18 Premier League appearances for the Blues.
