Inter will use Mauro Icardi in a deal for a new striker should Paris Saint Germain decide not to sign him in the summer, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Turin based newspaper Tuttosport.

The report details how the Nerazzurri have no interest in re-integrating the 27-year-old Argentine forward into the squad should PSG decide not to activate the €70 million buy option attached to the player. If Icardi returns, Inter would be happy to include the Argentine in a deal for either RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner or Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

So far negotiations with RB Leipzig have only been about a purely economic offer, the report continues, while with Arsenal the idea of including Icardi in a potential idea could become a reality. Regardless of whether Lautaro Martinez is sold to Barcelona in the summer or not, Inter are still planning to sign Napoli forward Dries Mertens on a free transfer, with the Nerazzurri ahead of Chelsea in the race.
