Arsenal transfers: Gunners interested in Mauro Icardi, claims journalist

Arsenal are apparently keen on signing Mauro Icardi from Inter Milan, but their advances have so far been rejected

Arsenal have expressed an interest in signing Mauro Icardi from Inter Milan in recent days, according to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli.

The Gunners have been linked with moves for a host of players in recent days as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his squad ahead of the close of the transfer window on Tuesday evening.

Arsenal have so far only brought in Petr Cech from Chelsea, despite plenty of speculation linking star names with moves to Emirates Stadium.

The north London side were reported to be interested in bringing Karim Benzema to the club from Real Madrid this summer but a move has failed to materialise.

Now, reported Giulianelli has claimed that the Gunners turned their attentions to Argentina striker Icardi, but their advances have been rejected by Inter Milan.

And Wenger is said to have held talks with Arsenal representatives on Saturday evening to discuss their transfer moves.

Arsenal secured a 1-0 win at Newcastle United on Saturday to notch up their second top-flight victory of the season.
