"The New Ronaldo" Who Could Save Tottenham's Season, But Chelsea Want Him Too

Spurs could certainly do with a few more goals from their strikers and the Argentine could be the man to provide them... Unless Chelsea get there first.

"The New Ronaldo" Who Could Save Spur's Season, But Chelsea Want Him Too

For any Premier League sides looking to add a little Catalan magic to their squad, albeit some that heralds originally from Argentina and has taken a detour to Serie A, Inter Milan’s young forward Maruro Icardi could be their man. According to the Daily Express, Spurs, Liverpool and Chelsea are interested.

Icardi moved to Barca as a 16-year-old and spent three years scoring prolifically for their youth teams before moving to Italy in search of first team football in January 2011. The 21-year-old joined Sampdoria and impressed in his first full season, scoring ten goals to help his struggling side survive the drop, and earned himself a big move to Inter Milan in the summer.

Inter may not be quite the force they once were on the European and domestic stage but it was still a huge step for Icardi and he has struggled to make an impact at the San Siro thanks to a long standing groin problem. He has still managed to find the back of the net though and there is clearly a lot of potential in the Argentina international that could well be unlocked in England if a side in need of a striker like Spurs were willing to take a gamble on the youngster...
