The Premier League giants Chelsea’s president Roman Abramovich is reportedly pushing to conclude a £100 million deal to land Serie A side Inter Milan striker and captain Mauro Icardi, the recent reports say.
According to the latest reports from the Mirror, the Blues owner is keen to bring the Argentine striker to Stamford Bridge, with negotiations over a new deal in Milan continuing to stall.
Mauro’s long-term future at the San Siro has been a point of discussion for a while, with reigning European champions Real Madrid also known to be admirers.
Inter Milan’s early exit from the Champions League this campaign cast further doubts over how long the star will remain at the club.
Italian boss Maurizio Sarri is eager to land a striker this month, with Spanish striker Alvaro Morata facing a bleak future at West London.
Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson and Juventus loanee, currently AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain have both been heavily connected with a move to London, but any potential deal for the former Sampdoria player would almost surely be the most expensive out of the three.
