Olivier Giroud has touched down in Italy for his AC Milan medical ahead of joining the Serie A giants from Chelsea in a £1million deal.
The France international forward was pictured on Thursday afternoon arriving at the Linate airport in Milan after being flown from Grenoble on a private jet.
Giroud, who was seen wearing a mask with the AC Milan badge on it, waved to the cameras and posed for photographs before he left the airport in a 4×4 BMW by a club associate.
The former Arsenal striker will undergo his medical at Milan’s training base on Friday before putting pen to paper on a two-year contract worth £3million a season.
Reports in Italy claim his deal will include an option for a further deal and expect Giroud to be confirmed as a Milan player on Friday.
Giroud, who last season won the Champions League with Chelsea, spent three years at Stamford Bridge, scoring 39 goals in 199 appearances for them.
