With reports gathering pace that Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud will be joining Italian Serie A giants AC Milan next season, there have been questions raised about how much of an impact he will be making at the Italian club next season. The France international attacker has grown fed up at Stamford Bridge following his lack of game time under manager Thomas Tuchel and has long decided that he wants to try out a new challenge elsewhere. He was largely restricted to minimal game time last season and hardly played in the Premier League, with Tuchel preferring Timo Werner over him and Tammy Abraham.

He has reportedly agreed to join Milan on a two-year contract and is expected to sign a deal with the Rossoneri in the coming days in order to finalize all the formalities in the deal. Giroud is an excellent striker and has always performed well whenever he got his chance. He is expected to be more involved in games at Milan next season than he did at Chelsea and there is a huge belief that he will score a couple of goals at the San Siro too.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic the club’s main striker, Giroud’s signing will help ease the burden on the big Swede and he would also be looking forward to making a big impact in Italy. In another news, French Ligue 1 heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain have submitted a bid of £40 million for AC Milan defender Theo Hernandez, with the French giants looking to build a fierce team capable of winning the UEFA Champions League title next season.

After already signing Sergio Ramos, Georgio Wijnaldum, Gianluigi Donnaruma, and Neymar (to a new contract extension), they have added more firepower to the team and if they get Hernandez this summer, they could be a force in Europe.
