The numbers may not even say everything, but they can certainly take on very specific meanings. Especially when we talk about great players, great attackers. And then, appealing to the numbers, we can say it well: Olivier Giroud , even if the identity card says 33 years (completed last September 30th), is still a great striker. It has been, and still is. And this could be worth a lot for the Inter in view of the next January market. The Nerazzurri, in fact, if they really are looking for a point able to make Lukaku take his breath and to guarantee the team of Conte international experience and goals, would do well to bet everything on the Frenchman, in goal even in the last match played with his national team jersey . Due to a contract expiring in June with Chelsea , Giroud could arrive in Milan at a price that is not at all prohibitive, compared to a curriculum still very respectable. Yes, because if you look at the numbers of the former Arsenal , it is difficult not to call it a great striker: 201 total goals in 500 professional appearances (one goal every 163 '), 10 trophies won in career (Un Mondo with the France, 1 title in Ligue 1 with Montpellier, 4 FA Cup, 3 Community Shield and a Europa League last year with the Chelsea shirt) and 2 times top scorer in top tournaments (in 2011-12 in Ligue 1 with 21 goals and in 2018-19 in the Europa League with 11 goals). As if that were not enough, Giroud is now in 6th place in the all-time ranking of the scorers of a prestigious club like Arsenal with 105 goals in 253 appearances (0.42 per game), behind Henry, Wright, van persie, Walcott and Bergkamp. Numbers to which could be added those totaled in the European cups, between Champions League and Europa League: 51 presences, 26 goals. More than one every two games. And all this can mean only one thing: that Giroud, when playing on European stages, is exalted. In many years of career, the French striker has always shown reliability, quality, ability to score in all ways. From the header to the powerful shot, from the 'Inzaghi' touches to the spectacular play. In short, all features that, in a season as long and tiring as this one, would make it really convenient for Antonio Conte, who not by chance focused heavily on him during his experience at Chelsea. The contractual conditions and the scarce employment reserved by Frank Lampard could be an opportunity not to be underestimated, for Inter. Assaulting Juventus through the contribution of ready, experienced (but not at the end of the career, Marotta dixit) players in January presupposes the investment on profiles like Olivier Giroud. Trains that rarely pass. Inter has the opportunity to satisfy Conte, and to continue pursuing a dream. Also and above all bringing to Milan players like him.
