Mario Balotelli has been pictured with the Arsenal badge in the background, fuelling rumours of a move to Arsenal. The picture was uploaded to Instagram and taken in New York where the player is on holiday.
It could mean nothing, but it could be a sly hint towards an Arsenal move. What is clear is that Balotelli is keen to move to the Premier League this summer, with Arsenal an intriguing option.
The Milan president claimed earlier this month that Balotelli was set to join Arsenal for almost £30million. Since this though, Milan seemed to have dropped their demands to just £14million.
At £14million Balotelli is surely worth the risk. He’d still want wages in excess of £100,000 per-week, but due to his quality and age, he is surely worth the risk.
