Chelsea are close to agreeing a deal worth £1.7m to sell Olivier Giroud to AC Milan.
As first reported by Sky in Italy, the 36-year-old France international is set to travel to Italy for a medical before signing for Milan in a €2m deal.
The Serie A side are set to pay an initial fee of £860,000 (1m Euros) plus another £860,000 in add-ons depending on the player’s appearances and the club’s qualification to next season’s Champions League group stage.
Giroud signed a new one-year deal at Chelsea last summer and last month the club took up an option to extend it by a further 12 months.
Arsenal sold Giroud to Chelsea for £18m in January 2018, six years after signing him from the Ligue 1 title-winning Montpellier side for £10.8m.
The striker has scored 39 goals in 119 appearances during his time at Stamford Bridge, winning three major trophies, including the Champions League title in May.
