How possible is this……
Reports according to Forzaitalianfootball is in the claim that Arsenal will offer Oliver Giroud plus cash in a bid to signing Argentina international Mauro Icardi, who plies his trade for Inter Milan.
Icardi, 23, has been at the prime of Arsenal transfer list but they are not left alone in the player’s chase. Napoli are equally interested but the Gunners have a heftier transfer war-chest and will most likely offer him a better deal.
According to Corriere dello Sport, however, Arsenal will submit a bid for the striker in the hopes that around €30-35 million in cash plus French international Giroud is enough to convince the Nerazzurri to let him go.
Since joining Arsenal, Giroud has scored less than 17goals per season for Arsenal but his recent exploits at the just-concluded European Championship means he still has a lot to offer for Arsenal.
Should this report be true, I’ll be really shocked because a player like Walcott has been more years at Arsenal but has remained average and unimpressive despite the chances given to him.
Icardi has been label as the new Aguerro following his style of play.
