Argentina striker’s agent in London for talks over Arsenal move – report
Mauro Icardi's agent and wife is in the English capital to hold talks with Arsenal, according to reports in Italy
Mauro Icardi’s agent has flown to London to hold talks with Arsenal over a summer transfer to the Emirates Stadium, according to reports in Italy.
Corriere dello Sport are claiming that the Argentina international’s agent – who is also his wife – Wanda Nara is in the English capital to discuss a potential move to the Emirates Stadium from Serie A giants Inter Milan.
The same article states that Arsenal may have to pay a fee in the region of £43m for the South American forward as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options at the north London club ahead of the new season.
The Gunners manager has been linked with a number of players in the summer transfer window but the 2014 and 2015 FA Cup winners have only completed two deals so far.
Granit Xhaka sealed a £33m switch to Arsenal from Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach in May ahead of Switzerland’s European championship campaign.
Earlier this month, Wenger wrapped a deal to sign Japanese forward Takuma Asano.
The Gunners ended up in second place in the Premier League table last season but finished the campaign without any silverware.
