Liverpool must make a move for the reportedly available Inter Milan hitman in the summer.
According to a report from Spanish media outlet AS, Inter Milan could sell Mauro Icardi for €80 million (£68 million), and the Argentine would be a superb addition for Liverpool.
The Reds are already an incredibly dangerous attacking force, but Roberto Firmino’s form has certainly dipped this season, and the signing of an established centre-forward might be just what the Merseyside outfit need to help them kick on again next season.
Icardi, 26, is a lethal finisher, and boasts an impressive track record, with 161 goals in 279 career appearances in all competitions thus far.
The Inter Milan hitman is widely regarded as one of the best out-and-out strikers in world football, and he would provide world-class competition for Liverpool’s current number nine.
He is at his most dangerous when operating in and around the 18-yard box, but he is also proficient when dropping deep and helping to link the play between midfield and attack.
Icardi possesses exceptional technique, and he would surely fit right in to Jürgen Klopp’s system and playing style at Liverpool.
The Argentina international is undoubtedly one of the world’s best front-men, and for just £68 million, Liverpool surely cannot afford to miss out on signing the 26-year-old this summer.
