Milan's Olivier Giroud keen to join LAFC this summer - source

Olivier Giroud of AC Milan celebrates after scoring their team's second goal during the Serie A TIM match between AC Milan and AS Roma - Serie A TIM at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on January 14, 2024 in Milan, Italy. 

AC Milan striker Olivier Giroud is in talks with LAFC over a potential transfer this summer, with the France international keen on joining last year's MLS Cup finalists, sources have told ESPN.

While Giroud, whose contract with Milan is due to expire this summer, has also held discussions with other MLS teams, the player's preference is to join LAFC and hopes a deal can be reached, a source added.

LAFC also holds Giroud's discovery rights within MLS, meaning it has priority if he moves to the league. Any other club wishing to sign him will also have to negotiate with the Los Angeles club.

LAFC signed Giroud's former longtime France teammate Hugo Lloris ahead of the 2024 season.

Giroud has previously enjoyed spells at Arsenal and Chelsea, as well as multiple French clubs.

At international level, he lifted the 2018 World Cup with France. He also represented the country at two other World Cups and three European Championships.

LAFC has reached the MLS Cup in the past two seasons, defeating the Philadelphia Union in the final in 2022 before suffering defeat to the Columbus Crew last time out.

The club has plenty of roster flexibility heading into the summer, with two designated player spots currently open.
