Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is desperate to bring in much needed striking additions with the likes of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto’o failing to consistently deliver the goods.
Having already identified Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa as a key target Mourinho is now looking at former Sampdoria man Icardi.
The 21 year old moved to the San Siro last summer and though he has played a limited role in Walter Mazzarri’s starting eleven he has still produced the goods.
Icardi has netted eight goals in 18 Serie A appearances, of which ten were from the bench and the talented youngster may well feel confident enough of making an impact at Chelsea if he were to join the west London club.
Chelsea may well elect to offload a number of their current forwards to make room for potential additions. Both Eto’o and Ba will see their Blues contracts expire this summer and Torres and youngster Romelu Lukaku could be sold to help fund possible big name signings.
