Intalian Serie giants, Napoli are reportedly readying €60m Inter Milan’s asking price to sign Mauro Icardi.
Icardi is not going to be part of Antonio Conte’s plans at San Siro after the chaos that ensued when he was stripped of the captaincy in February.
He was involved in the club’s swap deal to sign Manchester United striker, Romelu Lukaku, which would’ve resolved two problems in one for Inter, but the Old Trafford side refused.
New reports are now suggesting Napoli will pay up the €60m asking price for the Argentina international, with a salary that even surpasses the one proposed by Juve.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, Insigne could be used as part of an exchange deal for Inter.
La Gazzetta dello Sport had said though President Aurelio De Laurentiis is not a big fan of Icardi,he trusts Coach Carlo Ancelotti’s assurances this is the player who can take Napoli up a level.
In the last couple of seasons,the club under Ancelotti, created an immense number of scoring opportunities and lacked a clinical hitman to put them away.
De Laurentiis is also fired up by Maurizio Sarri’s arrival on the Juve bench and believes Napoli can finally end their Scudetto drought.
