With Alvaro Morata failing to live up to his price tag and reputation at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea could soon find themselves in the market for a new top class striker to lead the line instead of the Spaniard.
If Maurizio Sarri does decide to pursue a new front man then Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi ought to be at the top of his shopping list. The 25-year-old Argentine has been in blistering form in the last two Serie A campaigns, notching 53 strikes in 68 outings across the two seasons.
With a hefty Transfermarkt valuation of £85.5 million, Icardi certainly wouldn’t come cheap for the Blues. However, his lethal penalty box instincts and ability to link up the play neatly could make him a vital asset to Sarri and he definitely has the capacity to light up the Premier League.
Chelsea fans certainly seem on board with Icardi. When we asked them whether they’d prefer to sign the prolific Inter Milan man or stick with Morata, 93% said they’d rather buy Icardi. See the full results below.
