Arsenal have been boosted in their pursuit of former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli, after Galatasaray officially confirmed that they were dropping out of the race to sign him.

Both clubs are widely considered to be the main two in contention for the Italian’s signature, but Gala boss Roberto Mancini is believed to have told chiefs at the Turkish outfit that he doesn’t have the right style to fit in, and so they will not be pursuing a transfer.

This could leave the door open for Arsene Wenger to land a player in a position he desperately needs to fill, as he looks to provide competition for Olivier Giroud.

Meanwhile it’s also bad news on the Karim Benzema front, as the French striker has revealed he is looking to renew his agreement with Real Madrid. With the list of available strikers seemingly running thin, Wenger will have to move decisively if he hopes to sate the appetite of the Gunners crowd who are expecting big buys his summer.
