Arsenal step up interest in former Premier League star

Published Add your comment

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger have made former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli their number one striker target, according to reports in France.

Wenger has been scouring the transfer market for a new forward over the last couple of months as the north London outfit have had to rely on Olivier Giroud this season.

The 64-year-old Arsenal manager tried to bring in Schalke's Julian Draxler during the January transfer window but were unable to entice the 20-year-old away from the Veltins-Arena.

Wenger remains keen on bringing Draxler to the Emirates Stadium but has made Balotelli, who is valued at £25million, his number one summer transfer target.

The 23-year-old forward is said to be keen on making a return to the Premier League as he is not 100 per cent happy at AC Milan.

Wenger reportedly met Balotelli's agent last week in hope that he could persuade the Italian forward into sealing a move back to England.
