#4 Mauro Icardi (Inter Milan)

Mauro Icardi is a 26-year-old centre-forward who currently plays for Inter Milan in Serie A. He has also featured for Argentina's national team eight times since making his debut in October 2013.

What makes this transfer so likely is the fact that Icardi is unsettled at Inter Milan right now. His relationship with the club is at an all-time low, and after having only just returned to training after 36 days away, it's clear that he's nearing the end of his time in Milan.

The Sun reported that Inter Milan could be open to selling him off for just £43m, half of what his market value is estimated to be. The club are clearly desperate to get him off the books and focus on other things.

If Chelsea were to land a player like Icardi, it would change their whole attacking outlet. Sarri brought in Gonzalo Higuain in January to add some force to the attack, but he hasn't been anywhere near as good as fans, or Sarri, might have expected. This may be due to age, but Higuain doesn't fit the mould of a star striker -- but Icardi does.

Icardi is quick, strong, and if he breaks through the defence and finds himself on towards goal, there's only likely to be one result: Icardi wheeling away in celebration.
