As first reported by Sky in Italy, 36-year-old France international, Olivier Giroud is set to travel to Italy for a medical before signing for AC Milan in a €2m deal as Chelsea is said to agree to a deal.
Vantage News gathered that the Serie A side are set to pay an initial fee of £860,000 (1m Euros) plus another £860,000 in add-ons depending on the player’s appearances and the club’s qualification to next season’s Champions League group stage.
Giroud signed a new one-year deal at Chelsea last summer and last month the club took up an option to extend it by a further 12 months.
The striker 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.
