Chelsea’s Giroud in shock move to Barcelona

La Liga giants, Barcelona have made a shock move to sign striker, Olivier Giroud from Chelsea in this January transfer window.

Giroud has struggled to command a regular spot in the first-team at Chelsea under manager, Maurizio Sarri.

The France World Cup winner arrived Stamford Bridge from Arsenal in January 2018.

However, Barcelona are looking for a new striker to provide support to Luis Suarez, their first-choice centre-forward.

RMC Sport is reporting that the Catalan club have identified Giroud as one of the top transfer targets to sign this month to assist Suarez at the Camp Nou.

Giroud came off the bench in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Newcastle United on Saturday in the Premier League encounter at Stamford Bridge.

The 32-year-old has scored just 10 goals for Chelsea since joining the West London club this time last year.
