According to talkSPORT, Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi is set to turn down an opportunity to sign for the Reds as Brendan Rodgers clearly feels he needs more firepower despite signing Mario Balotelli from Inter’s great rivals AC.
It was well discussed in the tavern that the 21-year-old was close to signing for Liverpool during the summer but instead Brendan Rodgers opted for AC Milan’s forward instead.
Although now it seems like the tables have turned and Rodgers seems desperate to add another striker to his ranks after only winning three of their first seven games this season.
And Icardi said in a recent interview that he has no intention to leave the San Siro for the Premier League.
“On my contract renewal I don’t know anything yet. But I chose Inter, and I want to stay here,” he said.
“I want to stay because here we have a desire to build something. Because Milan is a great city, because the President has very clear ideas and because… because I want to stay here!
“Three reasons to believe in Inter? One: because I like this squad and the work the club is doing. Two: because there are many young players with a desire to win, because they haven’t won anything before. Three: we are a united squad, on and off the field.”
