Arsenal are reportedly looking to sign Inter Milan skipper Mauro Icardi and according to report from Sun, Olivier Giroud will reportedly be offered alongside £30m in cash.
Arsenal manger Arsene Wenger needs more firepower ahead of the season opener against Liverpool this coming weekend.
England international Danny Welbeck’s injury has leaves Giroud as the Gunners only recognized striker, but according to an Italian news outlet Gazzetta dello Sport (via Gazzetta World) they claims the France international is set to be offered in exchange for the Argentinian.
However, we are said to go head-to-head with Napoli for striker’s signature, and with Wenger stunning cash-plus-player bid, we should be able to win the race against the Partenopei’s for the Argentine ace.
Meanwhile, the Italian club are reportedly set to approach the Nerrazurri with stunning £50m bid after selling Gonzalo Higuain to Juventus for £75m – even though they’ve already landed Arkadiusz Milik from Ajax for £30m.
Giroud was also set up to be used as cash-plus-player for Higuan before he moved to the Turin, but the north London club now seem determined to bring the Argentinian to the Emirates stadium following a hip injury to first-choice target and Lyon star Alexandre Lacazette.
