Tottenham offered chance to sign PSG star in January, should they take it?

Reports stemming from France suggest that Tottenham have been offered the chance to sign a Paris Saint-Germain star in the upcoming transfer window.

Tottenham offered chance to sign Icardi

That player is believed to be Mauro Icardi. Icardi joined PSG from Inter Milan on an initial loan in September of 2019, before then permanently signing in 2020 for a fee of £45m.

However, since he moved to Paris, Icardi has often had to play second fiddle to other megastars.

Kylian Mbappe and Neymar have, of course, taken centre stage at PSG over the last couple of years, whilst Lionel Messi’s arrival has added more competition for places for Icardi.

Despite currently being used as a squad player, the Argentine, though, has maintained a respectable goal return for the French giants. In 77 games, he has scored 36 goals and provided 10 assists for PSG.

But now, Sport Witness, citing French outlet Foot Mercato, are reporting that:

Mauro Icardi is looking to leave Paris Saint-Germain in the winter window and has been offered to Tottenham Hotspur

It is added that PSG are looking to cut ties with seven players in January, with Icardi one of them.

Should Tottenham sign Icardi?

But should Tottenham sign Icardi? Well, that is likely to depend on two main factors.

Firstly, to accommodate Icardi properly, Spurs would need to change their 3-4-3 system to a 3-5-2. Antonio Conte won Serie A with that formation, so it is just a question of whether or not he feels that this Tottenham side can perform in such a setup.

Secondly, if the Lilywhites stick with their one-striker 3-4-3 system, they would probably have to sell Harry Kane to fit Icardi in, as Kane plays virtually every game he can for Spurs, which would leave the Argentine with little to no minutes.
