Chelsea fans are liking what they see from Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi after the 25-year-old sparked his side’s comeback against Tottenham Hotspur with a textbook volley.
Icardi met a Kwadwo Asamoah cross with precision just outside the box as the ball flew into the bottom left corner of the Spurs goal, and Chelsea fans are getting excited when they think about the possibility of the Argentinian joining the Blues in the near future.
Chelsea are yet to see the best of Spaniard Alvaro Morata and some fans think the club should go after Icardi who poses a much more clinical threat in front of goal.
Icardi, who has been at the Italian club since 2013, has 108 goals in Inter colours and could be the missing link that Chelsea have been after since the departure of Diego Costa.
Should a move for Icardi materialise then Chelsea will have some serious fire power with him and Eden Hazard in the same team.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions from Chelsea fans:

Chelsea would be silly to not chase Mauro Icardi.
Swap him for Morata.
