Tottenham were in action yesterday in the Champions League group stages and faced a tough test away at Inter Milan. The Lilywhites led 1-0 until a stunning strike from Mauro Icardi levelled it up on 86 minutes and then a Matias Vecino header in injury time gave Inter all three points. Arsenal fans loved seeing their rivals lose in such fashion and have been demanding they sign Icardi.
if Arsenal did sign Icardi there’s no doubt he’d be their number one centre-forward. The Argentine has goals in his boots and his goalscoring record speaks for itself. It’s made even more impressive by the fact that he continues to deliver in the Serie A, which is a league famed for the level of defending, yet the 25-year-old continues to make even the world’s best at the back look extremely silly.
Whilst the Gunners may be desperate to Icardi swap the San Siro for The Emirates, it’s very unlikely this transfer will happen. Icardi has a Transfermarkt valuation of £85.5 million and it would be an absolute steal if Inter let him go for that fee. Realistically it would take over £100 million to even get Inter to sit down and negotiate and that just shows how important the 25-year-old hitman is to Inter Milan.
Nevertheless, you can read the Arsenal fans call for the forward here:
Said it a million times but icardi is always the striker I wanted at arsenal. Unreal CF
