Arsenal turn to Icardi after missing out on Jamie Vardy
Having missed out on Jamie Vardy , Arsenal will look to boost their attacking options by capturing Inter striker Mauro Icardi.
The Gunners were left waiting for a decision from Leicester City ace Vardy, before the England international ultimately rejected the move in favour of remaining with the Foxes.
With manager Arsene Wenger determined to add more firepower to his squad, Arsenal have turned their attention to the Inter captain, according to Interlive.it.
The Nerazzurri are determined to keep hold of their star man however and are not expected to entertain any bids below €40 million for the Argentina striker.
The North Londoners are thought to be considering tabling a bid in that region and are remaining vigilant about Icardi’s situation at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
The former Sampdoria forward has scored 47 goals in 88 Serie A appearances for Inter and it is this prolific form that has roused the interest of the Premier League outfit.
Icardi is not the only Nerazzurri star to be linked with the Gunners recently, with Inter said to be keen to offload Stevan Jovetic to the club .
Arsenal are on the hunt for a striker to challenge France international Olivier Giroud up-front, as they bid for a first league title since 2004.
