Frank Lampard is under serious pressure at Stamford Bridge now after struggling to get his expensively-assembled team to gel.
Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo has opened the door for a sensational move for Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud.
The Frenchman, 34, has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge in recent months, playing second fiddle to Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner.
When asked about a potential move for Giroud, Pirlo said told DAZN: “He’d be handy!
“The window opens tomorrow, we already discussed with the club what we want to do and if there are any opportunities. Maybe a striker that can rotate with our strikers.”
Giroud’s recent purple patch – eight goals in his last Prem and Champions League appearances for Chelsea – is what has caught the attention of Pirlo.
Chelsea have been dealt a blow after Real Madrid reportedly beat Barcelona to the signing of Bayern Munich ace David Alaba.
Marca reports Los Blancos have edged out their El Clasico rivals in the race to land the experienced defender.
