Arsenal to move for €30m ex-Man City star following talks

Arsenal are all set for a summer move for former Manchester City star Mario Balotelli after having met with his agent last week, according to the Express.

The paper claims that having met with the player’s representative, Arsene Wenger has been sufficiently convinced that the Italian forward can be lured away from the San Siro for a number of reasons, in particular the fact that he has become unhappy there.

Balotelli has been the subject of intense speculation from the media of late, with various sources hinting that he was on the verge of a return to the Premier League. Chelsea - and ex-boss Jose Mourinho - were credited with a strong connection, but talks over a potential January move failed to amount to anything concrete.

And it would now seem that the Gunners have moved into pole position in the hunt for his signature, with Wenger keen to bolster his front line with a high-profile name.

Balotelli is thought to be seeking a move away from Milan and, despite the fact that his club have a very high valuation of him, there’s every chance a a bid in the region of €30million being accepted.

Recent reports have suggested that new Arsenal sponsor Puma would be willing to stump up as much as £15million in order to aid the club’s bid for the 23-year-old, and so money doesn’t look as though it will be a stumbling block for Wenger.
