Maurizio Sarri is desperate to sign Inter striker Mauro Icardi for Juventus when the Bianconeri appoint him as their new head coach, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Sarri made an attempt to bring Icardi to Napoli during the summer of 2016 and sees the forward as perfect for his 4-3-3 system, filling the role Gonzalo Higuain played for the Partenopei.

The soon-to-be-ex Chelsea boss reckons Maurito could score 40 goals in his Juventus side given his qualities as a proven finisher in the penalty box.

Inter want to replace Icardi with Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, but first the Nerazzurri must convince their former captain to join Juventus.

“Some are convinced Icardi will decline any offer which arrives from another club, including Juventus,” the Rome-based paper said today.

“We’re convinced he wouldn’t remain indifferent if Juventus really did turn up with an offer, though, while respecting his current state of mind.”

Icardi wants to stay at Inter until at least January 2020 when he will have 18 months left on his contract, at which point he will have the upper hand in negotiations with the Nerazzurri.

The 26-year-old is willing to be all but frozen out of the first-team squad in order to achieve this.
