Arsenal could bring Mario Balotelli back to the Premier League, with AC Milan reportedly prepared to offer the Italian striker for £30m.

Balotelli played for Manchester City between 2010 and 2013, and won the Premier League with the side in 2012.

The 23-year-old is the Milan's most salable asset, with Clarence Seedorf's team desperate to sell to finance transfers to overhaul their squad this summer. The Rossoneri finished eighth in a disappointing campaign last season.

According to the Daily Mail, Milan have grown increasingly frustrated at Balotelli’s erratic behaviour, the kind that infuriated players and staff alike at City, with his mood swings evident during TV interviews and touchline strops.


Arsenal are badly in need of another frontman to ease the burden on Olivier Giroud, and after Park Chu-young and Nicklas Bendtner left the club last month, the only other striker on Arsenal's books is the untested Yaya Sanogo.
