Paris Saint-Germain are poised to sack striker Mauro Icardi this summer – and both Arsenal and Newcastle United are being touted again.
Icardi joined PSG on loan from Inter Milan in 2019 before securing €55 million (£47m) permanent move in 2020.
The Argentine isn’t exactly a first-choice player at PSG as he has to sit behind Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi in the pecking order.
Icardi has scored just four goals in 23 league games this season and hasn’t scored at all in 2022.
That means PSG are looking for cash this summer and are knocking out Icardi, but according to RMC Sport they are struggling to find a buyer.
PSG need to suffer a huge loss to Icardi to get him off the books and the Premier League is touted as a target.
Calciomercato claim that Arsenal and Newcastle United are potential targets for Icardi.
Arsenal are certainly on the lookout for a number of forwards this summer but Icardi certainly won’t be joining them.
Mikel Arteta has worked so hard to remove bad influences from his squad. The drama seems to be following Icardi and that’s certainly not the kind of energy Arteta wants.
In fact, reports suggest that Arsenal actually turned down the chance to sign Icardi in January, leaving him very unlikely to play for him again this summer.
As for Newcastle, agents around the world will be touting clients for a move to St James’ Park this summer.
PIF’s huge investment means Newcastle could inject the money and Icardi could be seen as a striker to help out Chris Wood and Callum Wilson.
Yet again, with Icardi’s less than stellar reputation, this could be one for Newcastle to avoid unless they can secure a cheap loan deal.
