Atleti line up Giroud bid – report

With Diego Costa set to leave, Atletico Madrid have reportedly set their sights on Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud.

The Spain international looks likely to depart Vicente Calderon in the summer, with rumours suggesting that Chelsea will offer the striker’s €35m release clause in order to take him to Stamford Bridge.

As such, The Guardian believes that Diego Simeone’s men will look to the France international as a possible replacement.

Giroud has been in good form this term for the north London side, scoring 14 Premier League goals.
