Monumental boost for Arsenal and Tottenham as insider drops transfer hint

Arsenal and Spurs have been handed a massive boost in their pursuit of Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi as his agent, and wife, has hinted at a move away from the Italian giants.

The most powerful woman in Italian football this summer, Wanda Nada, tweeted on Saturday saying, “We must learn to give other people the same values that we give ourselves,” which is thought to be a cryptic dig at Inter Sporting Director, Piero Ausilio, after comments he made during a pre-season trip to Austria.

The Gunners are in desperate need of a top striker and as well as chasing the Argentine, who is also linked with a move to Napoli, are rumoured to be considering deals for Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski and French star, Antoine Griezmann.

Should the 23-year-old make the move to Spurs, he would add to a fearsome attacking armoury, with Premier League Golden Boot winner, Harry Kane and new signing Vincent Janssen providing intense competition.
