Metro have stunned the majority of punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they have claimed that Arsenal may be able to land Mario Balotelli for just £7.9 million.
This is all because AC Milan are so keen to get rid of the controversial forward.
Not only this but the Rossoneri want to land Arsenal’s young rising star Joel Campbell and have made Arsene Wenger a cut price Balotelli offer that includes the Costa Rican striker in return.
We think the Gunners boss will snap the Italian side’s hand off.
As one of our punters points out, we are not quite sure if AC Milan value Campbell that highly or simply think that little of Balotelli, but either way it could turn out to be one of the bargains of the decade for Wenger should Balotelli finally grow up and start to perform like we know he can.
Our landlord seems to think that despite Wenger claiming he does not need another forward this summer, should an offer too good to turn down come to his door, there will be no doubt in his mind.
We are still unconvinced by Olivier Giroud as a title winning forward and over a game of pool we come to the conclusion that if Arsenal want to win the Premier League next season, they certainly need another top class forward to do so.
Arsenal fans. Is this deal too good to be true? Will Wenger turn it down? Let us know your thoughts below.
