After scoring 20 goals in 11 matches at the ongoing 2017/2018 premier league season, the Blues are looking for an addition that will increase the number of goals they score and make them more competitive.
Despite having Alvaro Morita and Mitchi Bashuayi as their strikers, Chelsea coach, Antonio Conte is hoping he can purchase the Inter Milan goal poacher, Icardi Mauro to premier league champions.
According to Italian publication GOL, it’s reported that Conte would prefer to have Icardi in his team instead of Crystal palace Belgian striker, Christian Benteke who has been rumored to be on Chelsea’s radar earlier this week.
For Conte’s dream of teaming up with the Argentine striker to become reality, Chelsea must be ready to splash £88million (€100) and must be quick while making the deal.
The 24-year-old Icardi, will be a great addition to Chelsea’s front line as he boasts 86 goals in 155 matches for the SerieA giants.
Icardi’s move to Chelsea will definitely be a great threat to Batchuayi’s chances of getting much playing time as he’s currently not on Conte’s good book despite scoring 7 goals in just 13 appearances for the club.
Chelsea will be hoping to cut the gap between them and Manchester city who currently sit at the top of premier league table with 31 points having won 10 matches and a single draw.
Icardi was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal before we opted to sign Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon last summer.
