The Football Transfer Tavern seems quite split with the latest claim from the Daily Mail, which looks to have divided Arsenal fans right down the middle.
The Gunners are reportedly rather keen on landing Mario Balotelli – and manager Arsene Wenger will stop at nothing to sign the forward according to the publication.
Now as one of our punters notes, Balotelli is not exactly the most stable of players and you never quite know what you are going to get from him – although other punters think that anything would be an improvement on current forward star Olivier Giroud.
Our landlord moves over from the bar and goes to join the debating crowd at the pool table and notes that when he has a good day, Mario is very, very good and Wenger genuinely believes that he will be able to settle the player down.
Given AC Milan would be happy to cash in on the player, mutual sponsor Puma are thought to be willing to help broker a deal between clients Balotelli and Arsenal – and we know that money talks and think this could be key to a potential move.
