Inter Milan 'plot another Premier League raid by lining up Aubameyang AND Olivier Giroud.


Inter Milan are reportedly preparing to bid for both Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud this summer if they lose star striker Lautaro Martinez to Barcelona.

Martinez has been repeatedly linked with a move to the Catalan giants following an impressive first half of the season which has seen him net 16 times in 31 games.

Reports also suggest that Martinez wants to play alongside fellow Argentina international Lionel Messi at the Nou Camp.

And La Gazzetta dello Sport claim that should the 22-year-old depart the San Siro in the summer, Antonio Conte's men will be looking to make another raid on the Premier League.

Arsenal star Aubameyang will have just a year left on his deal at the Emirates Stadium in the summer, and the club could look to cash in on him rather than lose him for free the following year.

The Gabon international was linked with moves to Inter and Barcelona in January, and the report believes that Conte will make his move again in the summer to try and lure him away from north London.

Former Gunners star Giroud very nearly joined the Serie A side in January, but the deal never got over the line, but after a frustrating time sat on the bench he has managed to force himself into the Chelsea starting line-up due to an injury to Tammy Abraham.

But with Alexis Sanchez likely to return to Manchester United once his loan deal expires at the end of the season, Inter are keen on bringing in further attacking reinforcements and will therefore return for the 33-year-old Frenchman.

However, Inter could face competition from Lazio, who are also interested in signing Giroud, as they will also likely be able to offer Champions League football next season.
