Arsenal are ready to launch a £32million bid for Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, according to talkSPORT.

Arsene Wenger is keen to add a striker to his squad this summer after that area of the team struggled again last season.

He had targeted Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, activating a £20million release clause in his contract before the start of Euro 2016.

However, that move ended in failure as the England man instead opted to sign a new four year contract with the Premier League champions.

Wenger will now turn his attention elsewhere and it appears as if he has set his sights on Icardi as an alternative.

According to talkSPORT, the Frenchman is ready to launch a £32million bid to bring the Argentina striker to Arsenal this summer.

The forward was in fine form last season as he bagged 16 goals in 33 appearances for Inter Milan to help them finish fourth in Serie A.

The Italians would likely be loathe to losing one of their star men and it remains to be seen if £32million would be enough to convince them to sell.
