Bayern and Napoli eye Giroud

Interest mounting in Montpellier striker

Bayern Munich and Napoli have admitted to holding an interest in Montpellier's highly-rated striker Olivier Giroud.

The 25-year-old forward is considered to be hot property, with Arsenal also believed to be weighing up the merits of a summer approach. They will face stiff competition for his signature were they to make a move, with clubs across Europe set to join the transfer scramble.

German giants Bayern would head the queue of admirers, with the Bundesliga outfit expected to part with Ivica Olic at the end of the season and bring in attacking reinforcements. "We are looking for a forward and we have several names on our list. Giroud is one of them," Bayern scout Bjorn Andersson told L'Equipe. Bayern representatives were in attendance on Sunday as Montpellier drew 2-2 with fellow Ligue 1 title-chasers Paris St Germain. - http://www1.skysports.com/
