Olivier Giroud is reportedly open to a Premier League return next season and would prefer a move to a London club.
The French international is set to become a free agent in the summer when his contract with AC Milan comes to an end after spending two years in Italy.
And the World Cup winner could return to English football, with several clubs in England’s top flight reportedly interested in signing him.
According to the Sun, Giroud is already planning his next move before his contract runs out at San Siro.
The same source claims that West Ham, Brentford, Fulham and Crystal Palace are potential options for the former Arsenal and Chelsea striker.
Oliver Giroud is open to a Premier League return when his contract expires
West Ham is one of four clubs in the English top flight that could be interested in the striker.
The 36-year-old has scored 90 Premier League goals during his two spells in London with rival clubs and could be a useful asset for some teams.
Crystal Palace and West Ham are particularly in need of a top scorer at their club, having struggled to score throughout the season.
He might also be tempted to move to Craven Cottage, which would see him reunited with former Chelsea teammate and Brazilian winger Willian.
Giroud was also linked with a move to Manchester United earlier in the season, before the Reds brought in Wout Weghorst on loan from Burnley.
The Frenchman has enjoyed success in Italy since leaving Stamford Bridge in 2021 and has scored 25 goals in 68 appearances in all competitions.
Most importantly, he played a crucial role in helping AC Milan win the Serie A title during the 2021-22 season.
During his six years at Arsenal, Giroud helped the Gunners win three FA Cups. With Chelsea he won the FA Cup once again, the Champions League and the Europa League.
