Reports from Italy claim that Spurs are interested in the Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi.
Tottenham are said to be in talks with Icardi’s agent and mulling over a possible £38m move for the Argentinian international.
Icardi joined Inter from Sampdoria in 2013 and has scored 52 goals in 102 games for the Serie A giants, attracting interest across Europe in 2014-15 when he scored 27 times in 48 appearances.
Last season saw Icardi’s standards slip a little, but his final tally of 16 goals in 30 games is still very respectable. Arsenal are also said to be interested in the 23-year old.
While Spurs would surely like to add Icardi to the ranks, the size of the fee makes us question the plausibility of a deal. It could well be a ruse by the club to put pressure on AZ Alkmaar to accept an offer for their striker Vincent Janssen, who looks to be more realistically priced.
