Roberto Mancini will likely seal up a move for Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski over the weekend despite still keeping an eye on Balotelli at Liverpool.

However, the former Manchester City boss knows that he must part ways with an attacker in order to make room for the Italy international, and reports claim that it is Icardi who will be sacrificed.

Chelsea are keen to move for Icardi after a deal to being in Croatian hit man Andrej Kramaric stalled, and Mourinho is now prepared to spend £20m in order to secure the Argentine’s signature.

With Chelsea legend Didier Drogba set to hang up his boots at the end of the season, the Blues are aware that they need to bring in some fresh talent to ensure their forward line has enough fire power.
