Maurizio Sarri is keen to sign Mauro Icardi when he takes over at Juventus
- but any potential move relies on Paulo Dybala
leaving for Inter Milan, according to reports.
Sarri is currently still Chelsea
boss but is edging towards a return to Italy
after helping the Blues win the Europa League in his first season in England.
If he does take over, reports in Italy claim that he is desperate to sign Icardi, who has had recent problems with his club at Inter Milan.
Any deal though, according to Corriere dello Sport, hinges on current Juventus striker Dybala 'saying yes to going the other way to Inter Milan'.
The paper report that Sarri sees Icardi as a 40-goal-a-season man, and the perfect player to lead the line in his new-look team at the Allianz Arena.
Dybala, meanwhile, is unsettled in Turin and has been linked with moves away from Juve, and Italy entirely.
Bayern Munich are one of the teams said to be keen on an £80million move for the Argentine, while Real Madrid, Manchester United and Manchester City have all been credited with an interest.
Recent quotes from Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici have tried to pour scorn on any suggestion Dybala will be leaving though.
He said: 'He is one of our players, we have great confidence in him. The investment we made four years ago and the renewal of his contract is proof of this.
'Dybala is a Juventus player, a very important player for us.'
