Arsenal & Liverpool linked with audacious January transfer

Mario Balotelli (AC Milan)Liverpool and Arsenal have been linked with audacious moves to bring Mario Balotelli back to the Premier League, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The controversial striker only moved to the San Siro in January, but has already had a number of behind the scenes bust-ups.

This – allied to problems with racism in Italian football – has led to rumours that he could be allowed to leave this winter.

Both Liverpool and Arsenal have been alerted by this news, and could meet Milan’s £12m valuation of the burly hit-man.

Balotelli has been a huge hit since his return to his homeland, but he may be tempted to return to England where he enjoyed a turbulent, but successful, spell with Manchester City.

There are concerns about the 23-year-old’s temperament, but he is still considered to be one of Europe’s top strikers when fit and mentally prepared.

Liverpool are hopeful that a move would show the sort of ambition needed to keep Luis Suarez at the club, while improving their chances of breaking back into the top four.

Arsene Wenger is also keen, with a top class centre-forward believed to be a January priority for the Frenchman.

Could Liverpool or Arsenal really sign ‘Mad Mario’?
