Arsenal Closing In On Balotelli?

Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, is reportedly stepping up his interest in signing Italy striker, Mario Balotelli.

According to the Mirror, Arsenal have been offered the 23-year-old two weeks ago after new Milan boss, Filippo Inzaghi, has told the striker that he can leave the club.

The Rossoneri reportedly want to offload the striker to ease their financial problems by getting him off the wage bill and a transfer fee around £25m (R 456 million).

Balotelli, who was the Azzurri’s match-winner against England, has scored 30 goals in 54 games since moving from Manchester City to Milan.

Arsenal’s new kit sponsor, Puma, who also have a deal with Balotelli, could play a major part in the transfer.

Puma are reportedly ready to finance parts of the deal or Balotelli’s salary to imprve the Gunners’ attack, which has been overly depended on Olivier Giroud last season.

Wenger is at the World Cup as a TV pundit and Balotelli’s representatives have also come to Brazil.

The striker is understood to want to come back to the Premier League, and Arsenal have made the signing of a world-class forward to their main priority for the summer.

However, Arsenal are also reported to maintain their interest in French QPR forward, Loic Remy, who has a £10m (R 182 million) buy-out clause.
