We’ve always pointed out that Italian newspaper Tuttosport can get very creative when writing about the transfer market, being able to list several players in every story they have.
Now with clubs struggling during the Coronavirus crisis, many swap deals are starting to be considered, and that’s something that multiplies the rumours.
Tuttosport has a story about Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi today, and when talking about the possibilities for his future, the chance of a swap with Arsenal is mentioned.
They suggest that, ‘for example’, the player could be offered in an exchanged for Gunners striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
It’s said that Aubameyang is worth between €50m and €60m, which means he’s cheaper than Icardi. Still, it’s seen as a way for both clubs to find a solution for their players.
We better make it clear that Tuttosport don’t seem to have concrete information on any steps being taken with this deal. But once it’s suggested and thrown out in the Italian press, we all know this is a story which can grow very soon.
