Oliver Giroud puts off Lazio contract following Tottenham interest

Chelsea striker Oliver Giroud will hold off on Lazio’s contract offer following the interest from Tottenham Hotspur, according to Telegraph. The French World Cup winner is out of contract in the summer. He has scored 19 goals in 70 appearances for the Blues since joining from Arsenal in 2018.

The 33-year-old played a key role as Chelsea won the FA cup in 2018 before defeating Giroud’s former side Arsenal in the Europa League Final in 2019. The Frenchman scored as Chelsea won 4-1.

Giroud has found chances hard to come by this season and has made just six appearances all season with four of them coming off the bench. (h/t Whoscored)

According to the report, the striker is waiting to see if Tottenham will follow up on the interest shown in January. The 33-year-old looked close to a transfer last month but it amounted to nothing in the end.
