Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern hoping for a busy summer to improve their already impressive squad have raised their glasses this morning in approval of a potential striker signing at the end of the current campaign.
The Argentine forward has fallen out with boss Roberto Mancini at the San Siro and is likely to be offloaded, with Premier League clubs including Arsenal holding high interest in the 22-year-old.
Metro add Icardi is likely to cost just £20m, a very low fee for a player of Icardi’s calibre, and Arsenal have an advantage in luring Icardi to North London as the South American starlet is likely to seek opportunities at a Champions League level.
Our landlord believes Icardi is exactly what Arsenal need to provide an immediate boost to the squad and a great option for a future, whilst he’ll appeal to the board too as he possesses tremendous resale value.
Arsenal fans, is Icardi a striker that you’re keen on? Let us know in the comments below!
