Maurizio Sarri pushes Chelsea to launch last-ditch £100m transfer bid to replace struggling star

Chelsea are weighing up a stunning end to the summer transfer window as they ponder a £100million bid for Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi.

CaughtOffside understands the Blues are concerned about Alvaro Morata in the centre-forward role, and that manager Maurizio Sarri has specifically requested replacing the struggling front-man with Icardi – a player he knows well from his time managing in Italy.

While Sarri sees Icardi as a vital target whatever the cost, senior figures at Chelsea are concerned about the cost of the player, with Inter demanding at least £100m, CaughtOffside understands.

The Argentina international has been hugely prolific in Serie A down the years and seems an ideal addition for CFC in their current situation.

Various rumours have been circulating about the club signing a new big-name striker this summer, but Gonzalo Higuain ended up joining AC Milan instead, while Robert Lewandowski transfer rumours haven’t really gone anywhere.

Stamford Bridge sources have told CaughtOffside a late striker deal could still be on the cards
