Icardi: I want 20 Serie A goals this year

The young forward netted his 10th goal of the campaign on Sunday and he is determined to add another 10 in the remainder of 2014-15

Inter attacker Mauro Icardi is hopeful of netting 20 goals in Serie A this season after reaching double figures in this weekend’s 3-1 win over Genoa.

The young Argentine netted his 10th league goal of 2014-15 in Sunday’s victory and he is optimistic about Inter’s chances at success this term following the arrival of Lukas Podolski and Xherdan Shaqiri earlier this month.

“If the ball comes to me in the air, I have to find the back of the net,” Icardi told the official Inter website after his goal against Genoa.

“We’ve signed players that put quality into the box and I hope to score another 10 goals, if not more. Podolski and Shaqiri have come in and we’ve got pace up front.

“We need to give it everything and make sure the San Siro crowd are always celebrating. We need to keep going.

“We put in a great second-half performance against Juventus and we need to try and reproduce that for the full 90 minutes.”

Inter currently sit ninth in the Serie A table with 25 points from 18 games.
