Giroud willing to take pay cut to secure Inter move

Olivier Giroud is prepared to take a big wage cut in order to secure a move to Inter Milan this summer.

The 33 year old is out of contract at Stamford Bridge in June, and came close to leaving the club during the last transfer window, although he was thwarted on that occasion because Chelsea could not identify a suitable replacement for him.

The French World Cup winner has had to play second fiddle for much of the season under Frank Lampard, but, ironically, he had forced his way back into the side and was scoring again, when football was suspended.

However, with no guarantee of regular first team football at the Premier League club next season, he wants to move on, and Inter, who were one of the clubs interested in signing him in January, is his preferred destination, although he may have to accept a salary reduction of £25,000 a week to join the Serie A side.

Inter are potentially in the market for a replacement for striker Lautero Martinez, who has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona.
