Much like their hunt for an elusive fourth Premier League title, Arsenal’s fans in the Transfer Tavern have watched their side desperately hunt for a new centre-forward. To little avail.
Though the Spurs fans in at the opposite end of the bar haven’t let their Gunners foes forget about the infamous Jamie Vardy snub in a hurry, those from the Emirates may now have something to hold over their taunters.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Arsene Wenger and his club are due to hold talks with the agent of Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi.
The Argentine has been linked with a huge move to White Hart Lane, though it is the club’s biggest rivals who appear to be making initial moves to land the 23-year old.
The San Siro giants are not thought to want to sell their skipper, though a deal could be struck should the former Sampdoria ace force a move.
Is Icardi the right man for Arsenal? Would he be worth £43m?
