Arsenal close in on 57-goal hitman signing - agent confirms something could happen soon


Arsenal and Napoli were given fresh hope of signing striker Mauro Icardi after Internazionale sacked coach Roberto Mancini.

The Italian coach made it clear on a number of occasions that the Argentinean was a key player ahead of the new season.

Reports in Italy also believe that the former Manchester City boss left after the club decided to sell the 23-year-old.

According to, Arsenal will offer £30million plus striker Olivier Giroud to secure the services of the striker.

But they will face competition from Napoli.

The Partenopei have identified the player as the one to take over from Gonzalo Higuain who left to join Juventus.

Icardi is one of the most lethal strikers in the Serie A having scored 57 goals in 122 appearances.

Meanwhile, agent Wanda Nara has posted a cryptic tweet on her Twitter account: "If something should happen it will happen at the right time, for the right person and for the right reason."
