The agent of Argentina international striker Mauro Icardi has reacted to the interest in his player form the English Premier League outfit Chelsea.

The West London outfit have been without a cutting edge in their attack with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud not scoring goals in the first half of the season, leaving the burden to midfielders to bear.

However, the Blues were able to send Alvaro Morata out to Atletico Madrid on loan while Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain was brought in on a six month loan from Italian Serie outfit Juventus.

It is understood that manager Maurizio Sarri is still not satisfied and he is making moves for more additions in the summer window with Mauro Icardi from Italian Serie A side Inter Milan.

However, Mauro Icardi’s agent has confirmed that they are aware of the interests for his client but made it clear that he is already being distracted by it and it is telling on his performance.

He made it clear that the club wants him to remain at the San Siro and have promised to finalize talks with him for a new deal which is yet to happen.

It is understood that this will not stop the Blues from making a move for the star player in the coming summer window.
