Chelsea attacker Olivier Giroud is reportedly wanted by London rivals West Ham.

According to the Sun, new Hammers boss David Moyes is going to be backed in the January transfer window to bring new faces in at the London Stadium.

It is understood that Giroud is one of the targets that West Ham plan to move for in the New Year.

Football.London previously reported that Chelsea manager Frank Lampard will allow the 33-year-old to exit in January due to his lack of minutes.

With Giroud appearing to be heading for the exit doors, it looks like he could join West Ham to try help Moyes pull them away from relegation trouble.

The Hammers currently sit 17th in the table just above the relegation spots and they have dismissed Manuel Pellegrini as their manager.

Giroud could provide great competition for Sebastien Haller at West Ham and unfortunately his time at Stamford Bridge appears to have reached a natural conclusion.

The left-footed striker is behind Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi in the pecking order, which isn’t good enough for him when he’s still fighting for a spot in the France national team.

He’s not played a first-team minute since the end of November and could still do a job elsewhere.

Giroud provided some memorable moments during his brief Chelsea stint, but they currently have a brilliant forward option in Abraham who scored the winner against Arsenal at the weekend.
