Pascal Chimbonda has urged Tottenham to capitalise on Giroud's current situation, raising the possibility of a short-term loan if a permanent deal cannot be arranged.
“I do think they need a striker,” the ex-Spurs defender told Gambling.com. "Harry Kane is out for five or six weeks – who is going to score the goals?
“Lucas Moura is not a natural striker, Spurs need someone more like Kane, a focal point in the penalty area. Dare I say it, but I think someone like Olivier Giroud fits the bill.
“It’s obvious Frank Lampard doesn’t fancy him at Chelsea, I’m sure Giroud wants out, so why not him?
“Yes, he’s a former Arsenal player, but he’s also a World Cup winner and presumably he’s available.
“I’d take him on loan, but if the opportunity was there to buy him, then I’d buy him. There’s no one else readily available on the market who has his quality.”
