Arsenal super agent meeting: Stars who could be discussed

Published Add your comment

Reports in Italy emerged yesterday claiming that Arsene Wenger had scheduled a meeting with super agent Mino Raiola.

Initially it was thought that the meeting was to discuss Mario Balotelli, who has recently been linked to the Gunners as a result of their new sponsorship deal with Puma.

However, Raiola's list of star-studded clients, according to talkSPORT, goes on and on–Arsenal could be planning to discuss anyone of them.

Among his clients is Chelsea star Romelu Lukaku, who has recently admitted his desire to play Champions League football next season. After seemingly falling out with Jose Mourinho, that could mean a swift exit from Stamford Bridge for the towering Belgium.

Another likely candidate for Wenger's talks with Raiola is Blaise Matuidi, who was linked with a move to the Gunners as recently as January. He's currently plying his trade at PSG and has yet to sign a new deal at the Parc des Princes; his current deal expires in 2015.

His PSG teammates Zlatan Ibrahimovic is also represented by Raiola, but seems to be somewhat of an unlikely prospect to be discussed in his meeting with Arsenal delegates. The Swede seems more than content in the French capital at the moment but Arsenal's desperate need for a world-class striker means he can't be ruled out.

With Bacary Sagna looking more and more likely to depart the Emirates Stadium in the summer, Wenger may take the opportunity to discuss the future of AC Milan full-back Ignazio Abate.

AC Milan are looking certain to miss out on a Champions League place next season and may need to offload some of their stars to compensate for the lack of TV revenue.

M'Baye Niang is the last of the potential prospects on the list with the young striker already being linked to Arsenal in the past. Niang has struggled to establish himself at the San Siro and is currently on loan to Montpellier.
