Arsenal are interested in signing Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, the player’s agent has confirmed.
The Gunners are reportedly keeping tabs on the 23 year old striker and it is believed the club would make a move should Inter Milan decide to sell.
The striker is believed to be keen on staying at Inter but that hasn’t stopped clubs from indicating their interest in the striker. However, the striker’s wife who is also his agent Wanda Nara has revealed Arsenal and Tottenham are keeping tabs on the striker’s situation.
“We want to stay in Milan. People say I am a mercenary, but I am not. [Inter] have to say the truth. They can’t say Icardi is not for sale and then talk to other clubs,” Icardi’s agent said, as quoted by Ibtimes.co.uk.
“I’ve asked for a renewal because the club had promised me a renewal. Last year we accepted their conditions, which mean a lower salary, the sale of the 50% of Mauro’s economic rights and there is no release clause on his contract. They have to keep their promises.”
“There are many offers, but I do not negotiate with other clubs. I only talk about Mauro’s contract, that’s my role, not doing negotiations. Atletico Madrid, Tottenham and Arsenal have made contact. Napoli and Roma are also interested now,” she explained.
Wenger is keen on strengthening his attacking options this summer and it is not a surprise that Arsenal are interested in Icardi. The striker would be a good addition to our squad as he is one with so much potential.
