Conte pushes Chelsea to join battle for Inter Milan striker Icardi

Antonio Conte has urged Chelsea to move for Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi this summer.

Corriere dello Sport says the Blues manager isn't convinced by the quality of his attack and has identified Icardi as a priority for the summer market.

Despite adding Olivier Giroud last month, Conte believes Icardi can boost their firepower next season.

Conte knows Icardi is unsettled at Inter and seeking a big club move. However, any chance of Chelsea landing the Argentine will be dependent on qualifying for the Champions League.

Significantly, Conte's recommendation is a clear indication he is planning to be in charge for next season.
