Marca: Chelsea are willing to pay £97million release clause to make world class striker Sarri's first summer signing


Spanish site Marca has confirmed that Chelsea are ready to pay the £97million release clause of Mauro Icardi.

The 25-year-old would have certainly left Internazionale had they failed to secure a place in next season's Champions League.

But a vital win away from home against Lazio has shrouded his future in uncertainty.

The Argentinian is one of the most lethal strikers in the world having scored 29 goals in 34 games in the Italian Serie A last season.

If the transfer goes through, Alvaro Morata would leave Stamford Bridge after only one season at the club.

The Spaniard has failed to make an impact in London after his move from Real Madrid.

Gonzalo Higuain has also been linked with a possible move to Chelsea but Juventus are determined to keep hold of the striker.
