Mauro Icardi helped Inter Milan qualify for the UEFA Champions League on Sunday night and Chelsea fans are desperate to sign him this summer as a result.
The Stamford Bridge side need a strong transfer window if they’re to bring the fight back to Manchester City in the English Premier League next season and the striking area arguably needs lots of work.
Alvaro Morata had a roller-coaster of a debut season at the club, initially starting well before going through a barren scoring spell in the early stages of 2018.
With Olivier Giroud the only recognised back-up and the future of Michy Batshuayi uncertain, adding another elite striker could go a long way to ensuring they are competitive next term.
Rated at £67.5m by Transfermarkt, Icardi was on the scoresheet against Lazio on Sunday night as Inter booked their place in next season’s UEFA Champions League at the Rome side’s expense.
It was his 29th goal of the season and his seventh in his last ten matches.
Chelsea fans are desperate to now get a deal done, taking to Twitter in the wake of his latest performance to tell the club to sign him up…
Mauro Icardi for Inter:
Chelsea should do whatever it takes to bring him to London.
