Chelsea are reportedly monitoring Mauro Icardi’s situation after Inter Milan rejected PSG’s offer for the striker.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been warned against signing the Argentine striker.

Italian football expert Gabriele Marcotti said: “Look, you can take everything that we’ve said about Inter and put it on hold because everything is pending finding a buyer for Mauro Icardi.

“If PSG decide not to take him up and he comes back the other way, then I think it would be a serious, serious issue for them because then they wouldn’t have the liquidity to do other things.

“So it’s understandable if he’s being linked to other clubs. He does have a tremendous scoring rate.

“I personally don’t think Chelsea would be a good match for them really at all, simply because of Icardi’s style, because of his work rate, because he’s so different to what Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud bring to the table.

“He really is a supply-dependant striker, a very good one, but he’s somebody you need to create chances for.

“That’s very different from someone like Abraham, who’s so busy.

“It wouldn’t make too much sense to me but I’m not surprised that Inter or whatever intermediaries out there are trying to drum up interest Mauro Icardi, because if Paris Saint-Germain don’t keep him around it’s a bit of a disaster for Inter.”
