Arsenal are set to offer Mario Balotelli a deal worth £180,000-a-week to move to the Emirates Stadium this summer.
As Arsenal eye Mario Balotelli for the Premier League season of 2014-15, the player's agent also believes "anything could happen" and adds a £27million deal could be possible in the coming weeks.
Balotelli, whose header helped Italy secure a 2-1 win against England at the World Cup, has his agent talking on his behalf and it is reported that Mino Raiola has spoken to the Arsenal authorities.
"Arsenal are a fantastic club," Raiola told Sky Sports. "Will a transfer happen? Anything is possible." But, it seems likely that he would be in Arsenal colors as some reports in Italy say senior officials including negotiator Richard Law have drawn up a potential contract – worth £180,000-a-week.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is no doubt keen on having the striker in his line-up especially after considering the threat that Olivier Geroud poses for Arsenal.
Balotelli in that case could soon be back in England with the price being in reach of course. Wenger would like to build on his FA Cup win next season after his dedicated efforts but it seems that the departures that Arsenal are likely to suffer could do more damage to him than the good that the new signings would do.
Barcary Sagna has joined City after his contract expired and skipper Thomas Vermaelen has been in talks with Manchester United. On the other hand, Santi Cazorla has been considering a move to Atletico Madrid.
Wenger also thought about re-signing Cesc Fabregas because he had to pass up the chance as he couldn't accommodate both him and Mesut Ozil, and hence Fabregas signed a 5-year deal with Chelsea in a £27 million move from Barcelona.
The only boost however for Arsenal fans is the Joel Campbell, who has been impressive for Costa Rica could be given a go next season.
