Olivier Giroud on Marseille radar?

Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud is reportedly on the radar of Marseille ahead of the January transfer window, according to a report on Le 10 Sport.

The 34-year-old striker currently finds himself as first-choice at Stamford Bridge. However, the France international will be out of contract in the summer, which inevitably leaves him being linked with a move elsewhere.

Marseille manager Andre Villas-Boas wants to sign a new striker next month and Giroud is one of their primary targets.

The aforementioned report suggests Andre Villas-Boas’s side are ready to make an offer for the Frenchman during the mid-season transfer window.

Marseille are currently the No.1 favourites for the Ligue 1 title, sitting five points adrift of league leaders Lille with two matches in hand.
