Wolves: Contact made for Mauro Icardi

Wolves: Contact made for Mauro Icardi -Premier League News

Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly initiated contact to sign Paris Saint-Germain striker Mauro Icardi this summer, according to Corriere Dello Sport (via Sport Witness). 

The lowdown: Top-level performer

Having graduated through the heralded La Masia youth system at Barcelona, Icardi moved to Sampdoria in 2011, where he started to make a name for himself at the elite level.

Just two years later the Argentine frontman’s exploits earned a switch to Serie A giants Inter Milan, where Icardi scored 124 goals in 219 outings before joining Paris Saint-Germain for £45million (Sky Sports).

Now, after three years in the French capital, a first jaunt into the Premier League could be on the cards and Molineux may well be the destination…

The latest: ‘Had contacts’

As per Corriere Dello Sport, transcribed by SW, Wolves have already ‘had contacts’ with the eight-cap Argentina international.

It’s claimed that super-agent Jorge Mendes, who is well known to handle deals for the Wanderers, is all over the potential transfer due to a ‘very close’ relationship with all parties.

Still under contract until 2024, any move for the man described as ‘one of the most underrated players around’ with ‘poaching instincts second to none’ by GOAL correspondent Ameé Ruszkai would still prove to be an expensive venture for the Midlands club.

The verdict: Statement signing

Following an impressive start to the 2021/22 campaign, Bruno Lage’s side ended the season with somewhat of a whimper in no small part due to a lack of firepower in the final third, as Raul Jimenez struggled for his best form and Fabio Silva continued to disappoint.

Meanwhile, Icardi faced his own problems in front of goal as a season spent on the periphery in Paris saw the previously lethal Argentine score just five times in 30 appearances across all competitions – taking his career tally to 204 for club and country.

Sharing a close stylistic match with such renowned frontmen as Jamie Vardy, Luis Suarez and Youssef En-Nesyri (Fbref), Icardi remains a supreme operator and at 29 years old will be hopeful of potentially reviving a stuttering career with the Old Gold.
