With the Gunners failing to find the back of the net in their last three Premier League games, Arsene Wenger’s decision not to recruit another striker during the January transfer window seems like one that could very well come back to haunt him. No one recognises this more than the gaffer himself who is already putting plans in place to land a top forward come the end of the season. With past interest in Karim Benzema and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang yielding nothing, it has now been reported that Wenger has turned his attentions to Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi.
Fichajes via that Football Transfer Tarven reports that the Gunners are well aware that the Inter Milan forward Icardi will be available on the market and are putting together an offer for him.
The 22-year-old who has been dubbed for big things in his football career has largely been outshone by strike partner Stefan Jovetic this season having been at odds with Roberto Mancini style of play.
According to reports, the Argentine would cost the Gunners £20 million, little wonder the cash strapped Italian giants are looking to sell.
The Gunner’s are reportedly interested in signing a striker next summer and have been linked with a number of top strikers across Europe.
