Ok so we said that we wouldn’t talk about this one again for a while. But we believe that Arsenal need to sign this guy above all others so we are deeming it newsworthy.
Arsenal had been strongly linked with Mario Balotelli until Arsene Wenger spoke publicly about the rumours last week. But, while his quotes were broadly deciphered to mean that Arsenal had no interest in the player, Wenger simply said that talk of negotiations with the player had been exaggerated.
So there may still be mileage in this one. Certainly it’s hard to imagine Wenger not liking Balotelli. Sure he can mix up the rough stuff with elegant technical play but that’s exactly what Arsenal needs right now.
The Daily Mail reports:
Mario Balotelli has made it clear he wants to join Arsenal.
The striker is furious he has been blamed for Italy getting knocked out of the World Cup.
He was always set to leave AC Milan this summer but he is now convinced, not least because he feels he is a target for ‘ultras’ racists and despite problems he encountered in the Premier League while at Manchester City, he recognises that England is more cosmopolitan – especially London.
With more deals starting to drop now Arsenal fans will be getting increasingly frustrated with Arsenal’s softy softly approach.
What Arsenal don’t want is last minute deal(s) like last season. Arsene needs to be proactive in the market and Balotelli would be a tremendous start.
Let’s see dem skills.
