Lyon have reportedly made a contact with Chelsea star Olivier Giroud over a potential replacement for Moussa Dembele, who is set to leave the club for Manchester United.

The 33-year-old has made only six appearances this season under new manager Frank Lampard.

Giroud now considers leaving the Stamford Bridge in order to ensure he retains his place in France’s squad for Euro 2020.

According to Soccer Link, Lyon are willing to listen to offers for star striker Dembele in the January transfer window and are lining up Giroud as a potential replacement for the 23-year-old.
