Premier league news Giroud lined up as January target for David Beckham's Inter Miami Last spor news
MetiNews.Com - The former Arsenal striker is almost certainly set to leave Stamford Bridge as he seeks first-team football ahead of the European Championships
Breaking News ! Olivier Giroud's desire for more first-team football in order to keep his place in Didier Deschamps' France squad could take him to MLS and David Beckham's Inter Miami. The Mirror report that the veteran striker is a target for the Florida franchise after falling to third-choice under Frank Lampard at Chelsea. The summer arrival of Timo Werner and continued development of Tammy Abraham means Giroud is firmly on the periphery in west London having played just 36 Premier League minutes this season, including three off the bench in Saturday's 2-0 win at Newcastle.

Giroud is just eight goals away from beating Thierry Henry's all-time record for France and has the European Championships on the horizon next summer however it's been made clear that if he's not playing, it'll be hard for Deschamps to consider him for selection. Giroud enjoyed an excellent second half of the season at Chelsea, having signed from Arsenal in 2018, but cannot force his way back into the XI and his situation appears heading to an inevitable conclusion.

The 34-year-old is out of contract in 2021 and Serie A side Internazionale have also shown reported interest, as well as several Premier League clubs, according to his agent Michael Manuello, but Beckham and Miami offers a totally different experience in what is the twilight of his career. Giroud could also move to Florida knowing he would be one of the franchise's marquee players and guaranteed minutes. Of course, there is also the risk that Deschamps may not view the American top-flight with the same gravitas as various European leagues. Beckham is one of several co-owners at Inter Miami, who joined MLS this year as an expansion franchise and finish 10th of 14 teams in the Eastern Conference in their debut campaign.
