Serie A title challengers Lazio are reportedly lining up free transfers for Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud and AC Milan midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura this summer.

Lazio are reportedly lining up free transfers for Olivier Giroud and Giacomo Bonaventura when their contracts expire this summer.

The Serie A title challengers were among the clubs tracking Chelsea's Giroud during the January transfer window, when the Frenchman was keen to leave Stamford Bridge in search of more regular first-team football.

An injury to Tammy Abraham has since afforded the 33-year-old a chance to earn his place back in Frank Lampard's side, and Giroud has confirmed that he would now be open to staying at the club beyond the end of the campaign.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Lazio remain interested in the World Cup winner and hope to beat Serie A rivals Inter Milan to his signature this summer.

The Rome outfit are also interested in AC Milan's Bonaventura, who is another player due to be out of contract at the end of the campaign and therefore available for free.

The 30-year-old has made just nine Serie A starts this season, scoring two goals.
