Sources have revealed that Arsenal and Newcastle United are battling to sign Manchester City forward Mario Balotelli.
The Italian forward is believed to be heading to the Emirates for a medical to complete a move thought to be worth around £14million. Newcastle are also after Balotelli however they are only ready to sign him on loan.
The 21-year-old is well known for his bad temper and attitude and it is believed that Roberto Mancini has finally had enough of him and is ready to let the player go. It is unsure whether the move to Arsenal would be a good deal for the Gunners however Wenger is known for being able to control his players.
Balotelli moved to City from Inter Milan last summer for a deal worth around £24million, however the youngster has been in the headlines for more bad reasons than good, including confronting Dynamo Kiev fans in March following their defeat to the Ukraine club.
