£29m Bid Accepted – Medicals Ongoing, BBC CONFIRM Icardi To Arsenal Transfer

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Report according to an Italian source [via Evening Standard] claims Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi is set to report in London for talks with Arsenal about a potential move to the Emirates stadium this summer.

Whilst Arsene Wenger is keen on bringing in a new centre-back to the club, he is also hoping sign a top class goal poacher to the Gunners squad before the end of transfer window and Icardi has appear to be one on his target.

If the report from Evening Standard citing reports emanating from Italian publication Il Messaggero, it appears that the Frenchman is serious about bringing in the Argentinean international.

However, the report is also claiming we aren’t the only club in need of the South American’s services as the report also highlighted Chelsea and Napoli who are also keen while the Nerazzurri’s are said to be demanding £52m (€60m) for Icardi.

I personal don’t see Wenger that huge amount for Icardi, though there are also reports according to Daily Star earlier this month suggesting that we’re prepared to pay £29m in cash plus offering France international Olivier Giroud in exchange for the forward.
