£52m for Edinson Cavani or £13m for Mauro Icardi? It's not a straightforward decision. Cavani is a proven world-class striker, and he leads the Serie 'A' scoring charts.
But Icardi just might be the next big thing, and for £13m that would be a steal.
Argentina and Italy are battling over his international future, while Sampdoria can comfortably expect any suitor to at least match that asking price after a break-out season during which he's scored four past Pescara in January, and two past Juventus in a 2-1 upset.
Roberto Mancini's reportedly a fan, so maybe Cavani's not the answer post-Mario Balotelli.
