Chelsea handed potential lift in quest for Inter Milan prolific goal scorer
Chelsea have been given a potential lift in their quest for Inter Milan star striker Mauro Icardi, as indicated by the Sun.
The Blues have been observing Icardi’s circumstance at Inter for quite a while as indicated by a previous report from Gazzetta dello Sport, as deciphered by the Sun and the Stamford Bridge outfit have been given a lift in their quest for the Argentine forward after Inter dismissed an offer for Icardi recently.
As indicated by the Sun report, Inter Milan got an offer of £54m from Paris Saint-Germain, where Icardi is right now on loan and quickly dismissed it.
The offer made by PSG was in the region of £44.7m up front plus a further £8.9m in add-ons, according to the Sun report.
In any case, as indicated by Sky Sport Italia and Gazzetta dello Sport as interpreted by the Sun, Inter Milan are purportedly reluctant to move from their £62.7m valuation and asking price for Mauro Icardi.
Chelsea are still keen on signing Mauro Icardi, this could be the opportunity for them to move ahead of their opponents in the race for his signature.

The 27-year-old has scored 20 goals in 28 games for PSG this season and could end up being an incredible signing for the Blues, fitting right into Frank Lampard’s squad if they could get a deal from Inter this summer.
Frank Lampard has been shy of quality up front this season and Icardi’s record recommends he could well be an upgrade on the likes of Olivier Giroud, Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi.
