Antonio Conte is looking to seal a £10million move and Sky Italy claim Giroud's agent Michael Manuello was in Milan for talks today.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano's report adds that Christian Eriksen's representatives are also due in Italy to discuss a move to Inter.

West Ham, Aston Villa and Newcastle are also tracking Chelsea’s unsettled striker who has been told to find a new club by France boss Didier Deschamps.

World Cup winner Giroud, 33, is out of contract in the summer but is third in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge and has featured in only six games for them this season.

It is understood he would prefer a move abroad than a Premier League relegation battle as he looks to keep his spot for Euro 2020.

Ex-Blues boss Conte signed Giroud for £18m from Arsenal in January 2018 only to be sacked six months later, eventually turning up at Inter Milan last summer.

Chelsea are looking for a new striker in January and club legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink wants Lampard to land Lyon hotshot  Moussa Dembele.

He said: “Chelsea need to make new signings because you have to keep the rhythm going and just to get some kind of new blood coming through the door.

"It is always good when you make a signing. It gives everybody new energy. Obviously Tammy Abraham is doing really well but he is the only one really who is doing really well.

"Batshuayi is not making a difference. Giroud, I think, he does not really fit in with their plans.

"They need to get a striker in. Moussa Dembele would be a magnificent signing for Chelsea.

Christian Eriksen agent will be in Milano on next hours to meet Inter directors.

Inter are ready to make a contract bid to sign the Danish midfielder who’s going to be a free agent on next summer. 🔵🇩🇰 #transfers #THFC #Tottenham #Inter
