Chelsea & Liverpool January target available

Inter Milan are prepared to sell Mauro Icardi for £30m this month amid interest from Liverpool and Chelsea, according to reports from The Express.

The one-time Argentina international has been one of the Nerazzurri’s star turns this season with 11 goals in 23 appearances in all competitions, which prompted the Serie A giants to open negotiations for a new contract with him.

However, talks between Inter and the 21-year-old are understood to have broken down, with Icardi’s demands of a wage increase a major issue.

Money is thought to be tight at the San Siro at the moment, and with Lukas Podolski and Xherdan Shaqiri in on loan, manager Roberto Mancini is now ready to flog his star attacker.

Selling now while his stock is at an all-time high could appeal to the Milan-based giants.

Mourinho is reportedly looking to land a top, young striker with Didier Drogba set to retire at the end of the season, and the Blues have already missed out o now Leicester City star Andrej Kramaric.

Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers is still looking to find a replacement for Luis Suarez, who joined Barcelona in a £75m deal last year.
