​The wife and agent of Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi has talked about the future of the Argentinian striker.

As reported by the ​Evening Standard, Wanda Nara told Corriere della Sera: “We want to stay in Milan. People say I am a mercenary, but I am not. [Inter] have to say the truth. They can’t say Icardi is not for sale and then talk to other clubs.

“I’ve asked for a renewal because the club had promised me a renewal. Last year we accepted their conditions, which mean a lower salary, the sale of the 50% of Mauro’s economic rights and there is no release clause on his contract. They have to keep their promises.

“There are many offers, but I do not negotiate with other clubs. I only talk about Mauro’s contract, that’s my role, not doing negotiations. Atletico Madrid, Tottenham and Arsenal have made contact. Napoli and Roma are also interested now.”

The 23-year-old has impressed since his move to Inter in 2013, making him a target for many of Europe’s biggest clubs.

The Argentine scored 16 goals last season as his club finished fourth in Serie A, but a move to North London has been widely linked, with both Arsenal and Tottenham looking for attacking reinforcements.

Of the two Premier League rivals, Arsenal would appear more likely suitors. They have a more pressing need for a new striker, with Olivier Giroud recovering from his country’s Euro 2016 campaign.

Danny Welbeck is also out injured with another long-term injury, so the club’s forward line is looking diminished ahead of the season opener against Liverpool.

Tottenham, meanwhile, have already signed Vincent Janssen from Ajax for £17m as back-up to Harry Kane, so it is unlikely that they will invest in another striker ahead of their return to Champions League football.
