Inter Milan are prepared to launch an ambitious double swoop on Chelsea and Tottenham in an attempt to land both Olivier Giroud and Christian Eriksen.

France international Giroud has seen his gametime severely restricted this term due to the emergence of academy graduate Tammy Abraham.

The 21-year-old has made a sensational start to his Chelsea first-team career, overcoming UEFA Super Cup disappointment to currently sit second in the Premier League golden boot race with 10 (trailing Jamie Vardy’s 11).

Giroud has racked up just 211 minutes of action this campaign, and with his contract expiring next summer, Inter are set to jump the queue according to reports from the Italian media.

Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport claim Antonio Conte’s side are ‘ready to spend €7 million (£6m/$7.7m)’ to make the deal happen in the winter window.

With Abraham in sparkling form and Michy Batshuayi seemingly ahead of Giroud in the back-up queue, a deal for the Frenchman looks like it could go ahead.



The report goes on to state a move for Spurs’ Christian Eriksen is also on the cards at the San Siro, ‘though that will not take place until next summer’.

Meanwhile, Danny Rose has told Spurs chief Daniel Levy that he’s not leaving anytime soon.
