Lazio are interested in securing an agreement with Chelsea to sign forward Olivier Giroud before the transfer window deadline, according to Sky in Italy.

The France international striker, 33, has played just five matches in the Premier League for Chelsea this term and has looked likely to depart Stamford Bridge this month.

Sky in Italy are reporting that Lazio are looking to bring Giroud in on a two-and-a-half-year contract, worth an estimated 3m euros per season.

Giroud has turned down two approaches from Newcastle this month, while Inter Milan and Tottenham have also been linked with him.

Frank Lampard wants to sign another forward before permitting Giroud to move to Lazio, and Chelsea remain in talks with Napoli over a move for Dries Mertens.

Giroud’s current deal at Stamford Bridge expires in summer 2020.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are preparing a £20m bid for winger Willian before Friday’s 11pm deadline.
