A lot of Newcastle United fans are excited about the possibility of Olivier Giroud arriving from Chelsea before the close of the transfer window.
Do Newcastle have a chance of signing Giroud?
Yes, he needs the game time
No, he will have better options
However, their attention has now turned to bringing in a striker to support Joelinton.
According to Lee Ryder of the Evening Chronicle, the Toon want to bring Giroud to Tyneside, and this has excited many Newcastle fans.
#NUFC keeping a close eye on Olivier Giroud’s situation with striker still to find a club and Steve Bruce attempting a loan deal at the start of the window. Lazio are the latest side to be credited with interest in French striker.

Other Toon supporters, though, doubt that the 33-year-old would want to move to Newcastle.
This will def get hijacked even if we are in with a sniff!

What do we think?
Giroud, who is a World Cup winner with France, was linked with a move to the Toon earlier in the window, but then it looked like he was going to move to Inter Milan only to see that fall-through.
Tottenham Hotspur were also linked with a move for the former Arsenal striker, but it is unclear if the Blues would let him join a rival.
