Report: Icardi only wants Juve

Roma and Monaco are actively making moves for Mauro Icardi, but it is reported the Inter striker only wants Juventus.

Gianluca Di Marzio, Sky Sport Italia and Calciomercato.it all report Roma spent Monday pressing for Icardi.

The Giallorossi had been targeting Gonzalo Higuain, but the Juve hitman is so far resisting any moves away.

With that in mind, the possibility of a swap deal involving the 26-year-old and Edin Dzeko is gaining traction.

Di Marzio, Sky and Calciomercato.it all agree the Lupi are now ahead of Napoli in the running, the latter adding they have already offered him an €8m salary.

However, the Nerazzurri would be demanding €55-60m for their former captain, meaning the Lupi still need to splash out around €35-40m.

Furthermore, the situation is made complicated by Sportitalia’s claim that Icardi is only open to joining Juve.

Although Napoli can offer Champions League football, they are currently fixated on signing Hirving Lozano from PSV and still need to shift Arkadiusz Milik.

Meanwhile, Sky reports Monaco have made a formal approach for the No 9, despite their imminent deal for Wissam Ben Yedder.
