Forget Higuain! Agent tells Chelsea £90m hitman ‘heading to Premier League’
Chelsea target Mauro Icardi’s agent Wanda Nara has suggested the forward could be on his way to England, having yet to sign a new deal with Inter Milan.
Despite having some very creative midfielders in the side, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has seen his two main strikers struggle in front of goal this season, as both Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have less than the 13-goals Icardi has managed in Serie A this season.
That has led to alot of speculation that Chelsea could make a move for the Argentine striker thsis January, but were reportedly put off by the news that Inter have offered Icardi a big contract that he is keen to sign.
However, that does not seen to be the case, as his waife and agent Wanda has suggested that he could be on his way to the Premier League, as a new contract is far off from being signed.
She told Spanish outlet AS: “Icardi’s renewal with Inter is a long way off as things stand today. There are very important clubs that are interested in signing Mauro and we are very far from reaching an agreement [with Inter].
“‘We have a very good relationship with the two biggest clubs in Spain who are very interested in Mauro, as well as one in France and one in England.
Would Icardi be the ideal Chelsea signing?
Chelsea have been linked with a whole host of strikers over the past few months and Chelsea fans will have their favourites, but if the Blues are looking to sign a striker that can score goals for fun on a regular basis for more than a few seasons, then Icardi is the man.
He is a world class finisher than still hasnt hit his prime yet, Chelsea would so well to seal this deal.
