Icardi targets success with Inter

Mauro Icardi insists he wants to win silverware with Internazionale and is not looking to leave the club amid reported interest from Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Argentina international has been linked with a move to the Premier League after a fine season for the Nerazzurri, which sees him sitting third in the Serie A scoring charts with 14 goals.

But Icardi, who won the Capocannoniere last term after netting 22 league goals, has dismissed the latest exit rumours, saying he wants to bring the Scudetto back to the San Siro and a return to European nights.

"Where do you want me to go?" the 23-year-old striker said in an interview with Il Corriere della Sera.

"I'm happy to be here, to be our captain, our striker and to score goals. Of course I want to win things, but I want to do that here like many other players before me.

"Every year, people say I've got to leave and it's always the same story. The club's done a great job bringing in good players.

"We were winning games 1-0 at the start of the season, but we were up there before we had a dip in January, but the team's improving and I hope we will be even more competitive next season.

"Inter's objective has always got to be the ultimate: win the Scudetto and get back into the Champions League. And I want to win here, as soon as possible."
