Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi could be jetting into London to seek talks with Arsenal this summer, as he looks to decide on his future.
The Argentine striker is believed to be frustrated at having had talks delayed over a new bumper contract, having agreed previously that he would wait for the club’s financial crisis to die down.
Icardi had been strongly linked with a move to Napoli, as replacement for new Juventus signing Gonzalo Higuain, but a move has so far failed to materialise, although is not dead.
The report claims that the Inter Milan captain could now jet off to London to seek talks with the Gunners, as he looks to find out the seriousness of their interest in his signature.
His wife, and agent, Wanda Nara has continually threatened that Icardi would look for a move should they fail to bump up his contract, and the club have so far refused to meet his conditions, and now looks certain to leave, with Napoli or Arsenal most likely.
The North-London side have actively been seeking a new addition for their strikeforce this coming season, with Danny Welbeck having been ruled out until 2017, and with Theo Walcott having failed to impress in the central role last term.
Alexandre Lacazette has recently been very strongly linked with a switch to the Emirates club, but his club Lyon have been reluctant to play ball so far, and appear to keen on trying to keep their striker.
The French forward however seems to have other intentions, and could well get his wish to move to the big English side after all.
Who would you pick, Lacazette or Icardi? Or is there better available?
