Arsenal are ready to bid €30m for Milan striker Mario Balotelli, it has been claimed in the Italian Press.
Reports in England surfaced earlier this month that revealed Puma – the Gunners’ new kit manufacturer – were ready to stump up some cash in order to see one of their clients move to a Puma team.
And Sport Mediaset write this afternoon that Arsene Wenger has already met with the forward’s agent, Mino Raiola, to start initial discussions.
The website believes that the north London side are ready to part with €30m for the Italy international, some of which may come from the German sports brand.
It’s suggested that Balotelli is disillusioned with life at San Siro, and would welcome a move back to the Premier League.
