Olivier Giroud is a target of AC Milan, with the Serie A club reportedly considering taking the Frenchman on a loan deal.

Italian outlet NewsMondo write that Milan are closely following Giroud’s situation, and trying to figure out if there’s any way to bring him to their club, whether on a permanent deal or on loan in January.

The Arsenal striker is still yet to make a start in the Premier League for the Gunners this season, so the Serie A suitors are hopeful he’ll try to force an exit due to the lack of playing time.

Last week, Giroud finally scored his first league goals since the opening day of the season, converting twice against Huddersfield.

Nonetheless, Alexandre Lacazette, a major doubt to be fit for Saturday’s clash with Manchester United, ended up starting and scoring anyway.

There didn’t seem to be much danger of Giroud losing his place with the French national team as a result of his current situation until assistant manager Guy Stephan recently suggested otherwise.

Giroud has a great partnership with Antoine Griezmann for France, so it’s hard to drop either of them, unless they weren’t getting any game time at all for their club teams.

From the looks of things, that isn’t going to happen, so long as the Arsenal striker is regular playing either for the Gunners in the Europa League and League Cup, or for another side on a temporary basis.
