Mauro Icardi has stressed he has no intention of leaving Inter any time soon as he is happy with life at the Serie A side.

The Argentina international striker has recently been linked with a move away from San Siro, with Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United all believed to be keeping tabs on the 23-year-old, who has netted 14 league goals this season.

However, Icardi is determined to stay put and challenge for silverware with Inter.

“It’s the same story every year. Every year I read that I am leaving Inter,” Icardi told Corriere della Sera. “But I am happy here. I enjoy being Inter captain, being the club’s striker and to score goals here.

“Of course, I want to win trophies, but I want to do it here at Inter, like so many did before me.

“Next year we will be gunning for the Serie A title and to qualify for the Champions League.”

Icardi then went on to reveal two of his former idols, while also voicing his admiration for two compatriots.

“When I was little, [Gabriel] Batistuta was my idol,” Icardi added.

“Then I joined Barcelona and I really liked [Samuel] Eto’o. He always popped up in the right positions in the area.

“I also enjoy watching [Paulo] Dybala. The way he moves in between the lines and is moving behind the striker.

“I envy [Gonzalo] Higuain for his fine form this season, scoring a goal a game. But we are quite similar types of players.”
