Chelsea have been linked with a move for Argentine sensation Mauro Icardi, according to reports in the Express.

The Inter Milan striker has been excellent for the Serie A giants and scored 28 times from just 34 league games.

The report adds that Real Madrid are also interested in the forward but Icardi has stated that he isn’t thinking about a move to the Spanish capital.

The forward told Corriere Dello Sport (h/t Express):

“I do not think this is the right time, given the results – and I’m fine where I am.”

Madrid have struggled for form this season and sacked manager Julen Lopetegui. One of their own, Santi Solari, has now taken charge at the Bernabeu.

The report claims that Chelsea have been linked with a number of strikers as we look to add some quality in the January window.

Icardi would be an incredible signing if we pull it off, and Maurizio Sarri knows enough about the 25-year-old from his time in the Serie A.

The report adds that the Argentine is yet to sign new terms with the Serie A giants, and claimed that there is time to get the deal done.

The 25-year-old has 10 goals to his name for Inter from all competitions this season, while Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata have struggled to find the back of the net.

Icardi would not come on the cheap but we have broken the bank under Sarri while bringing in Jorginho and Kepa Arrizabalaga.
