AC Milan have already agreed a contract with Chelsea's Olivier Giroud with the French International's agents working to make sure the move happens, a report claims.

It has previously been reported that Giroud has already accepted a contract with AC Milan despite a clause being triggered to extend his Chelsea contract in April.

La Gazzetta dello Sport, via Milan Live, report that Giroud has sent his agents to 'unblock the situation' with Chelsea because he is determined to join AC Milan, hoping that a deal can be done quickly whilst the striker is at the European Championships.

The striker expects Chelsea to keep their word and release him if he receives an offer from abroad.

Chelsea are looking to bring in a new striker, having been heavily linked with Romelu Lukaku, Harry Kane and Erling Haaland.

However, Borussia Dortmund are seeking a fee of €150 million for Haaland, leading the Blues to consider alternative targets Gerard Moreno and Robert Lewandowski.

What has Olivier Giroud's agent said on his future?

“Chelsea exercised a unilateral option, but with the promise he’d be released if there was an offer from a foreign club.”
