Arsenal are looking to sign a top quality out and out center forward this summer to reinforce their strike-force.
On the other hand, rivals Tottenham have already hired the services of a prolific striker by signing Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar. The Dutch international scored 27 league goals for the Eredivisie side last season.
According to the Sun, Icardi’s agent traveled to London to hold talks with the Gunners over a potential move and that is worrying news for Spurs who are also looking to secure the signature of the Argentine striker.
Icardi was Serie A’s top scorer in the 2014-15 campaign. Last season, the La Albiceleste center forward netted 16 league goals for Inter Milan.
In all fairness, Tottenham do not need another striker. Pochettino plays with a lone forward 4-2-3-1 formation and Harry Kane is his first choice striker. Janssen will play as a cover striker.
As far as Arsenal are concerned, they lack a top quality goalscorer in the squad and signing someone like Icardi will solve the dilemma for Arsene Wenger.
