The Daily Mail are encouraged by Mino Raiola’s words and continue to link Milan’s Mario Balotelli to Arsenal.
The Gunners have emerged in recent weeks as one party with potential interest in the 23-year-old, amid continued reports that the Rossoneri are open to his sale from bids upwards of €30m.
The player’s agent Mino Raiola yesterday commented that ‘only 10 clubs could buy’ the player and did not outright deny that his sale this summer was a possibility.
It is a position that The Daily Mail today follow up in reporting that Arsenal maintain their interest and that they have initiated contact with Raiola with regards to arranging a possible move.
Further to this, it is seen that the next stage of the process is for officials at the Premier League club to better ascertain an idea of the cost of any potential deal.
Should the move ‘make financial sense’, then the club are seen as ready to commit to a transfer for the former Manchester City man.
