Mario Balotelli’s agent has suggested his client may be interested in a move to Arsenal after the World Cup.

Mino Raiola, who also represents Zlatan Ibrahimovic, said that the Milan striker is out of most team’s price range – but would not rule out a transfer for the Italy forward, who scored the winner against England last Saturday.

“Arsenal are a fantastic club,” Raiola told Sky Sports when questioned about reports in the British press linking Balotelli with a move to London.

“Only eight or 10 clubs in the world can afford Mario Balotelli – like all premium players, and he is one of the greatest.” As to whether the move will happen, he said: “Anything is possible.”

Arsenal will be wearing new strips from Puma in the 2014-15 season and the kit manufacturers also sponsor Balotelli, leading some to suggest that the German company may be pushing for the move – and willing to part-fund the transfer.
