Los Angeles FC close to signing Olivier Giroud for the next MLS season

LAFC is on the verge of securing a significant signing, with Fabrizio Romano indicating that the club has reached a verbal agreement to bring Olivier Giroud on board. The deal is expected to see the Frenchman don the Los Angeles FC jersey until December 2025, with the only piece missing being a signature.

The move comes after LAFC’s interest in Giroud was made public back in October 2023 and a formal bid has been sent earlier this week. While nothing has been officially signed yet, both parties are said to be close to sealing the deal.

Giroud, a 37 years old striker and a World Cup winner with France, reminded everyone of his abilities on the pitch as recently as yesterday. He was part of the French squad that secured a 3-2 victory over Chile in a friendly match on Tuesday night, scoring the winning goal.

Olivier Giroud has been part of Milan since the summer of 2021. The veteran striker made the switch to the Rossoneri from Chelsea in a transfer worth 2.85 million euros. Throughout the current campaign, Giroud has been a key figure for Milan, featuring in 36 games across all competitions. During this time, he has netted 14 goals and provided 9 assists, highlighting his enduring quality and contribution to the team.
