Crystal Palace are on the lookout for a reliable goalscorer in the January transfer window and are considering a move for Chelsea's Olivier Giroud.
The Frenchman has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge and has spoken of his unhappiness at his current role. He has started just once in the Premier League, with both Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi ahead of him in Frank Lampard's squad.
Lampard confirmed that, while he does want Giroud to stay, he would be prepared to sit down with him in January to discuss a move away if the striker wished to do so.
The 33-year-old, who joined Chelsea for £18m in January 2018, will enter the last six months of his contract when the winter window comes around, and it is suggested that the Blues would demand just £3m to part ways with him in January.
The Frenchman does not want to spend the remainder of his current contract sat on the bench, so a move away from Stamford Bridge certainly seems like the best move for everyone involved.
He has made just five appearances since the start of the campaign, just two of which were as a starter, and he has often been an unused substitute or left out from the matchday squad entirely.
