Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is reportedly a January transfer target for Bordeaux.
The 33-year-old is widely expected to leave Stamford Bridge next month having struggled to secure regular minutes under Blues boss Frank Lampard this term.
AC Milan and Inter Milan have both been linked with the experienced forward, although it has been reported that the Italian pair have both now dropped their interest.
According to Goal.com, Bordeaux are in the race for the France international ahead of the opening of the January transfer window, but the Ligue 1 side would struggle to meet his current wage demands.
The report claims that Paulo Sousa's team are hopeful that Giroud will either agree to take a wage reduction or that Chelsea will contribute towards his pay packet.
The 2018 World Cup winner has only scored once in seven appearances at club level this season while he has only featured in two of the team's last 14 Premier League matches.body check tags ::
