Mauro Icardi wanted by European trio

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan face a serious test in keeping hold of their star striker, Mauro Icardi, as three European sides are all interested in landing the Argentine.

The 21-year-old has netted seven goals already this season in just 12 appearances, and his performances have caught the eye of Premier League duo Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, as well as La Liga champions Atletico Madrid.

Icardi, who is being labelled as the 'new Cristiano Ronaldo', has been at Inter since 2013, after completing a move from Serie A rivals, Sampdoria, and in his first 33 appearances, he has netted 16 goals.

Summer Sale

According to reports, Inter, who have just hired a new manager in Roberto Mancini, are not keen on selling the striker in January, but they may listen to offers in the summer, especially if they can start a bidding war among the teams that are interested.

As well as Spurs, Chelsea and Atletico, Liverpool have been strongly linked with a move for the Argentinian international, as Brendan Rodgers is desperate to add more firepower to his lacklustre side.

Icardi has a contract at the San Siro until 2018, but due to Financial Fair Play, Inter could be willing to sell in the summer if the offer is right as it will give them a good chance to reinvest in the squad and raise funds for the transfer window.

Premier League Needs

Despite already looking certain to win the Premier League, Jose Mourinho's side may be looking for a new striker in the summer, with Didier Drogba set to leave despite only just rejoining the club.

The 36-year-old recently admitted that he may look to leave after this season, with his contract expiring. That would leave The Blues with just two strikers in Diego Costa and Loic Remy.

As for Spurs, they are in dire need of a clinical striker with Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor failing to produce the goods in front of goal. Liverpool are in the same situation as Tottenham, with Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert all struggling.
