From all indication, Wenger is ready to bolster Arsenal’s squad for next season and after losing out on Jamie Vardy, Wenger hasn’t given up on bringing a striker to the Emirates this summer. According to a report by TalkSport, Arsenal have started negotiation with Inter Milan in an attempt to sign Mauro Icardi.
Arsenal are said to be ready to pay as much as £32 million to sign the highly rated Argentine who scored 16 goals in 36 games in all competition for Inter Milan last season. 16 Goals in 36 games is certainly not the best of stats for a striker but when you consider the fact that the Argentine had a poor season and is also playing in a league as defensive as the Serie A then you realise how massively underrated the South American is.
The 23-year-old striker who signed for Inter Milan from Sampdoria in 2013 has scored a total of 52 goals for Inter Milan in 105 and created 15 assists as well. With Jamie Vardy set to stay at Leicester and Morata looking like he will be signing for Chelsea, Icardi will make a lot of sense. At just 23, he has the potential to be a great striker in the future and unlike Morata, he is already delivering on his vast potential.
