Tottenham Hotspur should move for Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud during the January transfer window, according to Chris Waddle.

Former Tottenham Hotspur attacker Chris Waddle has urged Jose Mourinho's side to move for Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud during the January transfer window.

The 33-year-old is widely expected to leave Stamford Bridge this month, having struggled for football during the first half of the 2019-20 campaign.

Spurs, meanwhile, are currently short in the final third having been hit with the news that their talisman Harry Kane will be on the sidelines until April with a hamstring issue.

Waddle has said that Giroud, who continues to be linked with Inter Milan, would be a good option for his former club at this stage of the season.

"Olivier Giroud seems to be one of the big-name stars being linked with Spurs and I'm sure there are a number of clubs looking at the French World Cup winner," Waddle told the Racing Post.

"I like Giroud. I know he misses a few but he scores them as well which tells me he knows where to find space in the box to accumulate chances. Indeed, he's getting better with age."

The France international has only made five Premier League appearances this season and was again not involved against Burnley on Saturday afternoon.
