Arsenal kit sponsors, Puma, are reported to be willing to shell out cash to help bring AC Milan superstar Mario Balotelli to the Emirates.
After failing to land a top-rated forward in January, Arsene Wenger is suggested to have broadened his options for this coming summer.
The controversial 23-year-old, who moved back to the San Siro in January 2013, has since found ways to get his focus back on to playing football. He has been a regular for Italy and has tallied 13 goals and 3 assists for the Rosonerri this season, thus far.
Meanwhile, Puma, who are looking to regain their iconic status in the sporting world, thinks that merging two of their greatest sponsored assets - in Balotelli and Arsenal - would help them in achieving their goals, long-term or otherwise.
The Italian is said to be worth £40million, and Puma are ready to cover, at least, £15million, to make the future deal materialise.
