Serie A side, AC Milan is interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain striker, Mauro Icardi.
According to Calciomercato.it. the PSG‘s interest appears to be mutual as the Argentine is currently out of the starting line up. Thomas Tuchel appears to favour Moise Kean, who recently moved on loan to the side from Everton.
His wife, who is also his agent, Wanda Nara recently congratulated Milan on their recent derby win. This further raised speculation about the former Inter Milan striker that was recently signed on a permanent deal by the Paris club after scoring 20 goals in his debut season at the Paris club.
According to DiarioAS the future of Icardi may be away from Paris. The Italian media further reported that Milan is keen on Wanda Nara pushing her husband to return to Italy.

To further heighten the speculation, TD Fichajes claimed that Icardi is now ‘determined’ to sign for the San Siro giant that is under recent rejuvenation.
It was also gathered that the Rossoneri have been looking for a center-forward capable of playing alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swede has been on good goalscoring form, barring their last outing in the Europa League against Sparta Prague where he missed a spot-kick. He later provided the assist for the first goal in the first half before being subbed off at half time.
Milan might be thinking of a partner for the Swedish with the Argentine initially before replacing him when he retires.
The report further stated that there is the principle of an agreement with Wanda Nara, and everything indicates that he will return to Milan.
The transfer fee could be around €40m, and it has reportedly been approved by Gazidis. This is far from the €70m paid to Inter to sign him on a permanent deal after an initial loan agreement.
So far, Icardi has scored two goals in four games this season for the Paris club.
What is now unclear is if there is no clause in his move to PSG from Inter that might hinder any potential move.
It should be noted that Icardi can still get more playing time at the club as things might change at any moment. This is following the recent groin injury sustained by superstar, Neymar.
The Brazilian has been ruled out of action for at least the next three weeks, which could see him miss the international games for the Selecao ahead of the coming FIFA international break.
With more playing time for the striker at the Paris club, there might be a new twist before the winter transfer.
