By the looks of it, the Inter Milan skipper and Argentine forward, Mauro Icardi is all set to leave the Italian outfit this summer, with a host of clubs fishing to get his signature, with Arsenal said to be favorites to land him, as of now. What makes the 23 year old striker stand out from the rest is his eye for goal and his habit of scoring key goals, his vision which is too good for a striker and also he naturally possesses an incredible knack of hitting the target in a thoroughly true manner. His goalscoring stats in the league speak for itself. Last season alone he had 16 goals, and 4 assists to his name, which is a decent tally with the way that things have been going at the San Siro. That’s an impressive contribution and only Antonio Di Natale at Udinese had more than the youngster.
A rare incorporeal amongst strikers these days is that instinct in the penalty area, and only few truly possess it, especially now with the play-makers and wide forwards coming out as goal scorers. The pure striker is very much a dying breed, but Inter Milan skipper is aiming to fly the flag a little while longer.
Also according to a recent report coming from Italian media outlet Gazzetta World, Arsenal and are looking for a very bold move of £29m cash plus their front-man Olivier Giroud and they could face the challenge from Napoli, who have lost their star striker Gonzalo Higuain to their rivals Juventus and are looking for a likely replacement. Further, even Chelsea were targeting the attacker, as they looked to add him to their current squad, after failing to sign Romelu Lukaku.
One can’t ignore the poor condition of this Inter Milan side at present too, which is also currently in a state of transition and is still in the process of rebuilding. Mauro Icardi is being built as a focal point of the new setup of the club to their rise to their prime, leading the line but also dropping off to help the flow of attacking moves.
Among all this, he is scoring, making the play, and has given Inter fans belief that they still have a real star player among them. Legend at the club Javier Zanetti is a particularly huge fan of the fellow Argentine and has openly show his admiration for the attacker.
So, if Arsenal manage to sign their top target, then the other Premier league clubs surely need to watch out for him, as the man is not just a prolific scorer, but will improve the Gunners immensely with his creativity and vision might surely surprise the clubs in the top flight of English football.
Everything will now depend on manager Arsene Wenger and his will to sign yet another player to add to his current squad up front, as he looks to win more titles in the upcoming season.
