The 19 year old Argentine has been in sparkling form for his Genoa based side this season, scoring seven goals despite having made just ten Serie A starts for Sampdoria.
Icardi netted an excellent brace to see his side to a surprise win at Juventus and then followed up with a four goal haul against Pescara. The Argentine Under 20 international is now being scouted by a number of Europe’s ‘Elite’ and Barcelona may be beginning to wish they hadn’t allowed the teenager to leave the club to move to Italy.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is seemingly keen to build a young squad and having spent over £80m to bring in six youngsters over the summer the Russian billionaire may well be considering a move to bring Icardi to West London. Ligue 2 side Monaco are also said to be interested in the Rosario born striker.
