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

Having failed to sign Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy, the Gunners will now turn their attentions to Icardi, who found the back of the net 16 times in the Serie A last season.

Despite standing as one of the Italian club’s star players, Inter Milan may well need to sell the Argentine as a means to comply with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations, just as they did with Real Madrid’s Mateo Kovacic last season.

Bosnian webpage Sport.ba go one further by lining up AS Roma’s Edin Džeko as Icardi’s eventual replacement, linking up with his former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini.

“Interest from Atlético [Madrid]? Yes, and many other teams,” said Pierre-François Aubameyang.

The two-footed wide man hasn’t quite set the world alight in his time with Serie A club Inter Milan, despite proving to be a standout performer at international level.

As is the case with Icardi, Inter Milan may be tempted to cash in on Perišić due to FFP, with Arsenal believed to be keeping tabs on the 27-year-old.

Chelsea are also rumoured to be in the frame, meanwhile Perišić’s arrival could well spell the end for Theo Walcott or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at Arsenal.
