Danny Mills urged West Ham to go all out to sign attacker Olivier Giroud as Chelsea may be willing to do a deal.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former England international shared that the Blues may be flexible when it comes to how much of Giroud’s wages they want covered.
Inter Milan have been in talks over signing Giroud but the door is open for the Hammers to reignite their long-term interest in him as the Italian giant’s move has stalled.
Mills explained that with the Hammers struggling a little bit than the Chelsea forward could be just what they need, however, he noted it’s up to the player to decide what he wants as he’ll have other options.
When asked if West Ham should go all out to get Giroud with Inter Milan’s deal stalling, Mills told Football Insider: “Yeah and Haller has had some injury problems as well hasn’t he?
“Giroud is a fabulous player and West Ham are on the brink of a little bit of trouble, and Giroud who can hold the ball up, his out and out quality, if you can get him…if he wants to come to West Ham, this move all depends on what Giroud wants.
“Where does he want to go? That’s what it’s all about. There will be plenty of suitors lining up to take him.
“Chelsea may be willing to do a deal regarding the loan fee or the player’s wages etc, but this is down to Giroud.
“Does he want to go to West Ham and play week-in-week-out, in a struggling side? Or does he wait and go to Inter Milan? Again, is he going to play every week? That may depend on other moves.”
Giroud has played seven times across all competitions this season, scoring one goal in the process.
The experienced forward has been with the Blues since joining from London rivals Arsenal in January 2018.
