Giroud undergoing AC Milan medical

Olivier Giroud is undergoing a medical with AC Milan before signing a two-year deal with the Serie A club.

The France striker arrived at Milan’s La Madonnina clinic at approximately 7am on Friday morning ahead of finalising his move from Chelsea.

The transfer fee for Giroud is understood to be around €1m (£855,000), with an extra €1m (£855,000) in bonuses subject to a number of appearances and qualification for the Champions League.

The 34-year-old signed a new one-year deal at Chelsea last summer and the club took up an option to extend it by a further 12 months in June.

With Olivier Giroud close to joining AC Milan from Chelsea, we take a look at his greatest Premier League goals, including that scorpion kick!

Arsenal sold Giroud to Chelsea for £18m in January 2018, six years after signing him from the Ligue 1 title-winning Montpellier side for £10.8m.

He has scored 39 goals in 119 appearances during his time at Stamford Bridge, winning three major trophies, including the Champions League title in May.

Giroud was involved in France’s disappointing Euro 2020 campaign as they were knocked out by Switzerland on penalties at the round-of-16 stage following a 3-3 draw after extra-time.

AC Milan have already signed Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea this summer, as they activated their £25m option to buy the young defender following a successful six-month loan spell, and are interested in Hakim Ziyech and Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The Italian club finished second in Serie A last season, securing a return to the Champions League following a seven-year absence.

Liverpool sweat on Olivier Giroud transfer so Jurgen Klopp can land key target

A whole host of clubs are monitoring the situation of the 21-year-old and Gazzetta dello Sport have claimed that Liverpool could be in mind as his agents ‘held talks’ with the club last month.

Should Milan miss out on signing Giroud, it is understood that they will then turn their attention to the Serbian attacker and will rival the Reds for his signature.

Vlahovic agreed a five-year preliminary contract with Fiorentina when he was playing for Serbian outfit Partizan in 2017 and made his debut for the club in September 2018.

The 2020/21 season has been his breakthrough year: only Luis Muriel, Romelu Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo scored more goals in the Italian top-flight than the youngster this campaign.

He also managed to provide three assists for his teammates and boasted a goal conversion rate of 29 per cent in Serie A.
