ARSENAL IN FOR BALOTELLI?

The future of AC Milan’s Mario Balotelli has taken another twist with Arsenal keeping tabs on the former Manchester City winger.

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger is a long time fan of Balotelli, 23, despite his controversial time at the Etihad where he gained a troublesome reputation.

Balotelli is keen to return to England and has already sparked interest from Liverpool and Chelsea. But Arsenal may be in pole position for the player who scored 30 goals in 54 games at Milan.

The Italian club, who paid £24 million for him 18 months ago, are in the mood to offload the player to ease their wage bill.

IT’S ALL FAB FOR LIVERPOOL!

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas appears to have more suitors than most European players at the moment with Manchester City and Arsenal already linked with the player.

However it now appears that Arsenal do not want their former player back and Manchester City’s interest has also cooled.

That has left the door wide open for Liverpool to firm-up their interest in the £30 million rated player.

Barca are ready to sell the midfielder and Liverpool would appear to have the strongest hand.

Liverpool would be happy to match his £100,000-a-week wages at the Nou Camp and the move would strengthen the squad ahead of next season’s Champions League campaign for boss Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool are also ready to wrap-up Alberto Moreno's £16 million transfer from Sevilla. The defender has been omitted from the Spanish World Cup squad, leaving Rodgers free to finalise the move.

However, the Europa League winners have turned down Liverpool's forward Suso as part of the deal but Liverpool are ready to increase their initial offer to £20 million.

MAN UTD STRIKER TO LEAVE?

The future of Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is under the spotlight after Inter Milan stepped-up interest in him.

They Italians want to loan the United striker ahead of wrapping-up a permanent £10 million deal. The Mexico striker is thought to be unhappy about the lack of games he has played for United, and Inter would like him to team up with Chelsea’s Fernando Torres.

Torres is unlikely to remain at Stamford Bridge and would prefer a move abroad rather than remaining in the Premier League.

KOKE HAS THE RIGHT FIZZ FOR UNITED

Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke is a major target for Manchester United in what would be a record £50 million club record deal.

New manager Louis van Gaal has begun plans to boost the squad and start the rebuilding process which failed to materialise under previous boss David Moyes.

But United will have to trigger the £48 million release clause in the contract of the 22-year-old because Atletico are determined to hang on to the rising star.
