French striker Olivier Giroud disclosed that it might be hard for him to say no to a big Italian Serie A time…
Since the beginning of the new Ligue 1 campaign, Montpellier striker, Olivier Giroud has proven to be quite a handful for Ligue 1 opponents.
In recent weeks, the Frenchman has become a centre of attention. The striker has already scored the most goals in Ligue 1 this campaign which has understandably attracted interest from many European clubs.
The likes of Napoli and Juventus are very closely monitoring Giroud’s progress and the striker says that he is flattered by the amount of interest he is getting and he has strongly suggested that he would favour a move to Italy.
However while talking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Chambery-born striker expressed his love for Milan.
“I always like seeing the big Italian teams play the Champions League, but I must say that I see Real Madrid and Barcelona favorites for this competition.
“I must admit, I support Milan. Marco Van Basten was a myth for me and I loved the elegance and versatility of Shevchenko. I also like Ibrahimovic.”
The recent statements made by the striker mean that he is clearly not sure about his future. However, if he does choose to leave La Paillade, Giroud would certainly not short of suitors.
Meanwhile, Giroud admitted that his first start for his country could not have gone much better.
“There were many positive things,” he is quoted as saying by L’Equipe. “Firstly, it was a great debut because I scored my first goal.
“Then, a victory in Germany, which is no small thing. Tonight [Wednesday], it’s a lot of happiness. I will savour for the next few days.”
Giroud is the top scorer in Ligue 1 this season, having struck 16 times in 24 games.
