Arsenal are the favourites to land AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli this summer, according to the bookmakers at least. 

According to odds from PaddyPower, the Gunners have been placed at 5/2 to land the controversial Italian forward. Their Premier League rivals Chelsea, meanwhile, are out at 7/2 to bring the forward back to the Premier League. 

Both Arsenal and Chelsea have been linked with a move for Balotelli in recent time, with reports suggesting that Milan value him at around £20 million. It remains to be seen, however, as to whether the duo make a move for the striker this summer. 

The Gunners are certainly in need of added options in attack, with Yaya Sanogo currently the only real back-up for Frenchman Olivier Giroud. 

Chelsea, on the other hand, look set to bring Atletico Madrid ace Diego Costa to Stamford Bridge, after reports suggested that the player had passed a medical with the club. However the battle to bring Balotelli back to the Premier League may have only just begun.
