The former Manchester City star is keen to return to the Premier League – and London in particular. AC Milan hitman Balotelli was originally interested in a reunion with his former Inter boss Jose Mourinho at Chelsea. But Gunners chief Wenger is now in pole position. Balotelli enhanced his improved reputation with a superb and disciplined performance against England eight days ago when he headed his country’s winner. His agent Mino Raiola is now seeking a £150,000-a-week deal for Balo, 24. And he is conﬁdent that he can reach agreement with Emirates boss Wenger in their discussions.The Arsenal boss is in the market for a striker and Balotelli has shown that he can not only play in a wide-attacking role or “in the hole” but also has the maturity to operate up front on his own. Meanwhile, former Gunners hero Ray Parlour reckons Balotelli would be a big hit in North London and believes Wenger can handle the controversial forward.
