Hasselbaink urges Chelsea to swoop for Inter Milan marksman

Former Chelsea star Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes the Blues should make an approach to sign Mauro Icardi from Inter Milan when the transfer window reopens at the end of the season. The Argentina international has endured a mixed relationship with the Nerazzurri amid his recent antics and reports have indicated that the Italian club may consider his sale during the summer.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Hasselbaink said that the Blues require a genuine goalscorer upfront and Icardi and Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski are potential choices in his opinion. However, he added that the former could be the perfect foil for the west London side, given he has the age by his side to succeed with the former Premier League champions.
