Chelsea are set to miss out on a January transfer for Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi after pundit David Amoyal confirmed that the Argentine hitman won’t leave when the transfer market reopens.
He talked about Chelsea and Mauro Icardi on calcioland podcast.
2012 Champions League winners Chelsea are on the search for a first choice striker after Spanish international player Alvaro Morata failed to perform consistently in that role.
The former Real Madrid and Juventus star has been able to score just 22 goals in 69 appearances since his multi-million pounds move in 2017.
The Blues are long-term admirers of Mauro Icardi and they have been heavily linked with the player dating back to when Maurizio Sarri was appointed as the new Chelsea manager.
Inter Milan were able to repel Chelsea and other interested clubs and the situation will remain the same next month as confirmed by the aforementioned David Amoyal.
In the absence of a move for Icardi, Chelsea are said to be plotting a complicated transfer for his compatriot Gonzalo Higuain.
Higuian is presently on a season-long loan deal at AC Milan from Italian champions Juventus and a possible swap deal involving Alvaro Morata has been mentioned in the British media.
