Argentina international Mauricio Icardi, who was recently linked with a move to English giants Arsenal, is all set to remain in Italy as Inter Milan have announced that the striker has agreed to terms on a new deal with the club through June 2019.

A few days ago a leading English daily reported that the Gunners discussed terms with Icardi’s wife and agent over a summer transfer.

Despite interest from some top clubs across Europe, Icardi’s agent had said as recently as the past week that the 22-year-old wanted to stay with Inter.

“All players want to be in the Champions League, but I’m happy here at Inter,” Icardi told the club’s official website. “I hope I can qualify for that competition next year with a great Nerazzurri side.”

Arsenal are desperate to land a striker this summer but have already fallen short in their pursuits of Jamie Vardy and Alexandre Lacazette.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
