Marseille open talks with Chelsea over Olivier Giroud


French side Olympique Marseille have opened talks this week with the Blues, over forward Olivier Giroud.

The 31-year-old only arrived at Chelsea in January from rivals Arsenal, and the Frenchman proved to make an impact in several of the games in which he featured.

But now his boss is Maurizio Sarri, his future at the club is already uncertain.

Now RMC Sport are reporting that Marseille have opened up discussions over his availability this summer.

However it must be said, Giroud is reportedly ready to fight for his place at Stamford Bridge and is looking to stay put in London.

He is yet to return back to pre-season training after his World Cup triumph with France, so we will have to wait and see whether he is part of Sarri's plans or not.
