Bar the movement of players from one club to another, players and their agent take advantage of the transfer window to get improved contracts from their clubs.
According to reports emanating from Italy, Arsenal’s target Mauro Icardi have been offered an improved contract at Inter Milan The only reported stumbling block is that the new deal is worth €5m a year and Wanda Nara(his agent) wants at least €6m.
Fichajes claims Arsenal were really interested in signing the Argentine but it was the appointment of Frank De Boer as the new manager of the San Siro giant that slowed down the players transfer to Arsenal and changed the situation.

Combine this with the fact that the player himself seemed hell bent on staying put at the San Siro and it seems clear that he was never going to leave.
