Chelsea fans are excited by links with Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi

As reported by Spanish outlet AS, Chelsea have tabled an opening offer for Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi.

With 22 goals so far this season for the Italian giants, he has become one of the hottest properties in European football and as such, fans are very excited by the latest links to his signature.

Chelsea have struggled in the striking area this season with Alvaro Morata losing form, Michy Batshuayi shipped off to Borussia Dortmund and Olivier Giroud seen as a back-up option by Antonio Conte.

Morata may have recently scored his first goal of 2018 but if the Blues are to improve in the English Premier League next season then they likely need elite competition for the Spanish forward.

Rated at £67.m by Transfermarkt, Icardi would appear to fit the bill and supporters agree, some believing he’s the ideal man to help them achieve their ambitions next term.
