Spaniard tells Liverpool target will be massive hit in England as Rodgers closes in on £28 million deal

Liverpool are reportedly closing in on a deal for £28 million rated striker Mauro Icardi.

The Inter Milan striker has been tipped to be the ‘new Ronaldo’, and is valued at £28m by his club.

Brendan Rodgers has been heavily linked with a move for a while, as he looks to fill the void left by Luis Suarez.

And amid all the talk of a move, Icardi’s former coach Jesus Hernandez tipped Icardi to shine in England.

As quoted on the Daily Star website, Hernandez said: “If Icardi played in Spain or England, where he is likely to go, he would be a star.

“He will become one. He has the talent to be the new Ronaldo. You’ll see.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
