AC Milan could lower their £27m asking price for Mario Balotelli if Arsenal are willing to send Joel Campbell in the opposite direction, according to reports in Italy.

Tuttosport suggest the Rossoneri are keen on the Gunners’ Costa Rican striker who spent last season on loan with Greek side Olympiakos, scoring against Manchester United in the Champions League.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, however, has already stated his intention to give Campbell a chance at the Emirates next season.

‘He will definitely come back to us for pre-season,’ the Arsenal manager said earlier this week. ‘He is maturing well.’
