Reds To Face Challenge From Chelsea
The 21-year-old Argentine was linked with the Reds during the summer but despite rumours they were prepared to pay £24million no bid was forthcoming from Anfield.
Icardi claims not to have had his head turned by interest from the Premier League this summer and is keen to sign a new deal with Inter. But Liverpool, as well as Premier League leaders Chelsea, are being linked again.
Reports from Italy in August suggested wanted to move to “a big club in a big city” and Inter will demand around £28million.
Icardi has had a good start to the current season. He has hit seven goals in 11 Serie A starts plus one substitute appearance for an average of a goal for every 135 minutes he spends on the pitch, a comparable average to his form last season when he was used more as a sub.
