Mario Balotelli latest: Agent Mino Raiola refuses to rule out Arsenal move
The Italy international has been strongly linked with the Gunners and his agent remains coy on a move to the Emirates Stadium
Mario Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola has fuelled speculation that the AC Milan striker could join Arsenal after refusing to rule out a move this summer.
The 23-year-old, who joined the Serie A giants from Manchester City in January 2013, has been courted by the north London side after an impressive 18-month spell at the San Siro.
It has already been reported that Arsene Wenger is prepared to pay £25m to sign Balotelli, who scored in the 2-1 win over England on Saturday in the World Cup Group D clash.
And Raiola was reluctant to dismiss the notion of Balotelli leaving.
"Arsenal is a fantastic club in London," he said in a statement to Sky Sports.
"Only 10 clubs in the world maximum could afford Mario - like all premium players and he is one of the greatest.
"I won't make any further comment until after the transfer window closes."
Balotelli scored 18 goals in 41 appearances last season for the Rossoneri, but the club are reportedly keen to sell the former Inter Milan striker in order to slash their wage bill.
