Napoli try to convince Icardi

Napoli have offered €60m plus bonuses for Mauro Icardi and could even include Arkadiusz Milik in a swap deal, but the player remains hesitant.

Icardi has rejected all options other than Juventus so far this summer, even after he was frozen out of the Inter squad and told publicly on several occasions that he was not part of their plans.

Now the situation around Icardi has changed considerably over the last few days and that gives Napoli a very big opportunity to convince him.
