Football has been on hold for a while now due to the coronavirus pandemic but it has not stopped players and clubs from considering their futures whilst they hope to return to action on the pitch as soon as possible.

The transfer market has been garnering much of the attention lately due to no action on the pitch and one player who is looking out for the summer transfer window is Chelsea striker and France international Olivier Giroud.

Everything pushed back to June with Inter? Who knows…”
