AC Milan are still said to be interested in selling Mario Balotelli, but would struggle to get the fee they initially placed on the forward after his generally disappointing World Cup campaign.
Balotelli was strongly linked with Arsenal and looked to tick many of the boxes the club needed. But having just signed Alexis for £30 million, the club are highly unlikely to spend a similar amount on another forward.
However, recent reports indicate Balotelli’s asking price has fallen considerably, with Milan asking for a fee in the region of £15 million. If that’s the case, Arsenal should seriously consider making an offer for the Italian, who is capable of becoming one of Europe’s best.
