Sampdoria’s Mauro Icardi is ready to join Inter and declared “I think I’m a lot like Gabriel Batistuta.”
The Argentine forward is expected to complete the transfer this summer and is currently on international duty.
“People compare me to Batistuta and he is the player I base myself on. I think I’m a lot like him, too,” Icardi told El Litoral.
“I would love to win as much as he did. I have great technique, a good shot and I’m pretty good in the air.”
The 20-year-old shot to fame at Sampdoria this season with 10 goals in 31 Serie A games.
