Determined to leave Chelsea this summer, Olivier Giroud (34 years old, 17 appearances and 4 goals in the Premier League this season) has been announced for several weeks at AC Milan. The Italian club moved towards the French striker, by offering him a two-year contract, including an annual salary of 5 million euros; although former Arsenal hitman, playing for Blues since January 2018, had his ongoing contract extended by an option featured within, Rossoneri are still hoping to sign WC 2018 winner on a free move.

While keeping on tracking Giroud, AC Milan drew out a plan B. According to Sky Italia, AC Milan could in fact turn to AS Roma center-forward, Edin Dzeko (35 years old, 27 games and 7 goals in Serie A this season), in case of failure in the negotiations for Giroud. The Bosnian only has one year of contract in the Italian capital and his value is estimated at around 5 million euros. So far, José Mourinho, recently appointed Giallorossi boss, looks adamant over keeping six-season long AS Roma main hitman in, who's tracked by Juventus as well.
