Giroud has been on fringes of Tuchel’s plans at Chelsea and his contract is set to expire
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is looking to add more firepower to his front line in the summer and is keen on both Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Braut Haaland and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero.
Giroud has failed to land a starting place under the German boss, and also was on the fringes at Chelsea with Frank Lampard.
Due to his lack of game time, the 34-year-old is highly unlikely to renew his deal in London as his agent has began talks with clubs abroad.
Sportsmail revealed that Chelsea are leading the race to sign Man City’s Sergio Aguero
Giroud has played 14 Premier League matches this season and scored four goals.
Sportsmail revealed that Chelsea are leading the race to sign Aguero, a possible replacement for Giroud’s imminent departure, but they will have some fending off to do to land his signature.
Real Madrid and Barcelona are among the other names showing an interest in the Argentine, who will also be available on a free this summer.
