Chelsea fans debate latest rumours regarding Icardi swoop

Chelsea’s unbeaten Premier League run remained in tact at the weekend as they drew 2-2 with Manchester United.

Maurizio Sarri has implemented an attacking philosophy at Stamford Bridge and the players are responding well to it.

One problem that the Blues’ do have, though, is a lack of flair up front.

At the moment, Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud are the Blues’ main strikers but the pair have only struck three goals between them.

For a while Morata has struggled for consistency as Chelsea’s focal point, meaning that the team have had to rely on Eden Hazard and their wide men to provide the goals.

Due to this, rumours have been swirling that the club will try to sign a new striker when the transfer window reopens in January.

According to the London Evening Standard, Chelsea have lined up moves for Inter Milan hitman Mauro Icardi and Genoa’s Kryzysztof Piatek, but it seems that signings either of them is unlikely.

The report goes on to say that Icardi would only consider leaving the San Siro for Real Madrid, while Genoa have ruled out offloading their man.

Chelsea fans have been tweeting their reactions to the latest development, and it is clear to see that Icardi is a favourite among the club’s following.

It is not difficult to see why given that he has already scored six goals and created two assists in nine outings in all competitions this season.
