Mario Balotelli claims he is happy with life at AC Milan amid speculation the Italy international will be a target for Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old has scored 26 times in 40 appearances for Milan since his transfer from Manchester City little over a year ago, but reports of unrest have persisted with the club enduring a dreadful season.

Milan’s poor campaign led to a change in manager, with club legend appointed to replace Max Allegri, while the Rossoneri’s expected absence from the Champions League next season has prompted their best players to be linked with transfers away from the San Siro.

Balotelli has been the most prominent of Milan’s stars to have reportedly attracted interest from elsewhere, with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said to be ready to spend £25 million to the Emirates Stadium.

The Italian, however, has moved to scotch suggestions he could leave Milan and insists he is content at the club and is pleased to be able to work under the new coach.

"I have spoken with him about situations with the team and the things that I must do on the field," he told Marca. "I'm happy.

"Seedorf is a great champion and it's a pleasure to listen to him. He was also a great player. I hope that everything goes well."
