Speaking in an interview with Canal Football Club, OGC Nice Technical Director Gilles Grimandi discussed the possibility of signing Olivier Giroud.
“Olivier I know him very well. Very well because I was involved in his transfer from Montpellier to Arsenal. Olivier will choose his destination. For the moment I have not spoken to him. If Olivier Giroud decides to come to OGC Nice it is because he knows the means that we have. I am not sure he can come (interviewer asks if Giroud doesn’t want to divide his salary by 3) then. If Olivier Giroud decides to come that is because he likes the project at OGC Nice. If Olivier is not happy at Chelsea, if he wants to play, we will take all the elements into account. I have spoken with Patrick (Vieira) about Olivier Giroud, but we have not spoken with Olivier Giroud.”
