Our Chelsea fans are moving towards our landlord at the bar here in the Football Transfer Tavern as he reports that Metro seem to think that the Blues are considering making a move for Mauro Icardi.
As one of our punters notes over a couple of pints, Icardi is someone who we have seen Chelsea linked with time and time again, but who looked set to be staying with Inter Milan for at least a while longer after contract talks between the player and the club began.
However as Metro now claim, the talks have stalled and Chelsea scouts who have been keeping updated with the progress of the negotiations, and are now confident of making a £22 million swoop and landing their man this summer.
We think that Jose Mourinho needs another forward who can prove his fitness and help his side in their quest for European dominance next season and think Icardi is the man for the job.
Chelsea fans. Would you rather sign Icardi or someone like Christian Benteke? Let us know your thoughts below.
