West ham eye January move for Olivier Giroud

Olivier Giroud has been very impressive for Chelsea this term and I bet that no one thought he would be this influential in the side after the acquisitions that were made by the Blues this summer. The veteran forward is attracting interest from neighbors West Ham and they will try to sign him in January according to reports.  The Hammers have been decent thus far this season under David Moyes, although their striking department has left more to be desired. Haller has been struggling since he made the move from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019. The forward has failed to live up to expectation with Michail Antonio currently on the sidelines. Haller has scored just 2 goals in 11 games. According to the Mirror, the Hammers have identified Chelsea as where they will go for striking reinf...
