Chelsea have Mauro Icardi on the radar for next season if the negotiations between Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan do not end happily, according to the newspaper The Sun. The French giant has priority in exercising the purchase of the Argentine for 62 million pounds, but wants to make a deal. However, a 53 million pounds bid has already been rejected by the Italians.
The team led by Thomas Tuchel still has time to try to find a common denominator and is aware of Antonio Conte’s interest in Cavani. Despite this, the delay in getting it done means that other clubs are also linked to the striker’s name, such as Juventus, Napoli and Manchester United.
The Blues are looking for long-term options, as Giroud and Batshuayi should not be taken advantage of by Frank Lampard. Thus, the 27-year-old striker emerges as an alternative, since Inter Milan does not want to be with the athlete who has scored 20 goals in 31 games this season.
