Liverpool, Chelsea keeping tabs on Serie A frontman ahead of possible transfer

Posted by

Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have all been linked with a move for Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, according to reports in Italy.

The forward has had a difficult time of things in Serie A this season, and was dropped by Inter coach Roberto Mancini for the high-profile Italian clash with AS Roma last weekend.

Since the manager’s decision to sideline his captain, speculation about Icardi’s future has intensified, with reports suggesting that he could soon be on his way to England or Spain.

According to CalcioMercato [as per Le 10 Sport], the unhappy player is being targeted by Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool, as well as Spanish giants Real Madrid.

However, the Italian source note that the player would not move for less than €35 million.

So far this season, the 22-year-old has scored three goals in nine league outings for Inter—who currently lead Serie A—while he managed an impressive 22 in 36 showings in the division last season.
