are finally closing in on the signing of forward Olivier Giroud.

I have been pursuing the Frenchman for quite some time, but an agreement has now been reached with the winners to take the forward to the Stadio San Siro.

La have reported that will pay Chelsea €1 million in compensation to sign the player, who had his contract automatically renewed by the Blues this summer as it was set to end.

Giroud is expected to arrive in on Thursday ahead of undergoing his medicals on Friday.

The forward will sign a two-year deal with the club worth €3m per year. There will also be an option in place that will allow the club to add a third year onto his stay in Lombardia.

Giroud will then report to training after his post- holidays after July 26.
