Arsenal are set to hold talks with Mauro Icardi’s agent this week as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options, according to reports in Italy.
Gianluca Di Marzio is reporting that the north London club will meet with the striker’s representatives this week in London to discuss a potential transfer to Emirates Stadium.
However, the story says that should they reach an agreement, it appears that it would be up to the striker himself to force a move away from Inter Milan – because the Serie A club are not currently open to selling their skipper.
Arsenal have been on the lookout for a new striker in the summer transfer window and Wenger has signalled his intention to sign a forward with the club’s failed bid to land Jamie Vardy from Leicester City.
The north London side ended up in second place in the Premier League table last season and were widely criticised for failing to sustain a title challenge as they ended up 10 points behind champions Leicester City.
