Tottenham still hopeful of Giroud deal

Tottenham are still hopeful they can do a deal for striker Olivier Giroud, despite the fact that he has just signed a new deal with Chelsea.

Last month, the 33 year old Frenchman signed a 12 month contract extension at Stamford Bridge worth £110,000 a week. However, since then, Chelsea have agreed to meet the £54 million release clause of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, and are now being linked with another Bundesliga star in the form of Bayer Leverkusen’s kai Havertz.

That could push Giroud down the pecking order under Frank Lampard once more next season, giving Spurs heart that a transfer could still be arranged for the ex-Arsenal striker, who is likely to be valued at around £7 million.

Crystal Palace, West Ham and Lyon are also monitoring his situation, although now the French club have been confirmed as missing out on European football next season, they must be regarded as outsiders.
