Striker star's wife reveals on Twitter she's in London after reports of Arsenal talks
By Will Butcher
Mauro Icardi’s agent and wife Wanda Nara revealed via her Twitter account that she was in London on Wednesday evening.
The Inter Milan captain has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks and Italian publication Corriere dello Sport claimed on Wednesday that Nara was flying to London for talks with Arsenal officials.
This appeared to have been corroborated after Nara, inadvertently or otherwise, revealed her whereabouts to her Twitter followers.
She tweeted from her personal account, “Happy day my friends” but Icardi’s wife didn’t remove the location on the tweet, which states that she is in the English capital.
Feliz día a mis Amigos ❤️

Nara has been vocal about Icardi’s situation, claiming he is underpaid at Inter and that he could get a better deal elsewhere.

The 23-year-old was made captain under manager Roberto Mancini last season but failed to help the club return to the top of Serie A.
The former Sampdoria striker bagged 16 goals and four assists in Serie A for the Italian giants last season, but was left out out of the highly competitive Argentina squad for this summer’s Copa America.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is keen to bring in a striker this summer, having been linked with Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette and AC Milan’s Carlos Bacca, after losing out on Premier League champion Jamie Vardy.
Icardi has three years remaining on his San Siro deal but his future is in doubt following a breakdown in his relationship with Inter chiefs.
