Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has claimed Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi would score 40 goals under Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri.

With the January transfer window, there Is much speculation in the media which have suggested that Sarri is desperate to spend some funds and land a new striker for the club having lost faith with both Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud.

And one man that many fans would like to see arrive if Icardi, who has netted an impressive 128 goals for Inter since his move to the San Siro, and already has nine goals to his name this season.

Now, De Laurentiis has claimed that Icardi would score 40 goals a season under Sarri, with the Italian boss keen on signing the striker ever his days at Napoli.

The Napoli president is quoted by Corriere dello Sport as saying: “I offered 55-60 million, I do not remember. I met his wife, very nice. We spent an afternoon together, we negotiated a potential contract.

“Icardi is a champion, he could become a new Ronaldo, in the hands of Sarri he could make 40 goals.”

Could Icardi turn us back into Premier League Champions?

Sarri is building something quite special here at Stamford Bridge and has barely begun his transfer business to get the side he wants, but if we truly want to take the title away from City then a world class striker is definitely needed in the coming transfer windows.

Morata is a young man that has been tipped to become a world beater, but he will not get us that 30-40 goals a season that we need, while Giroud is more of a back-up striker at the club and will be lucky to even get 15 goals.

But the Premier League is not Serie A and the Italian League is no longer the force in Europe it used to be, especially since the likes of Inter, AC Milan and Napoli are average sides that would struggle in the English game, so scoring goals for fun in Seria A is not the achievement it used to be, and Icardi may struggle in front of goals just like Morata and Giroud.

So is he really the man that could lead us back to the very top of the game?
