Napoli to hijack Arsenal move for Balotelli


Napoli are ready to bring Italian star Mario Balotelli to the Stadio San Paolo after making him their top target this summer. 

This would mean that Arsenal’s attempts to sign the player could fall short, which would mean that the Gunner’s would miss out on another striker to provide competition for Olivier Giroud. 

It appears that Lionel Messi has tempted Barcelona to bring in Argentina team-mate Gonzalo Higuain to the club, which would leave Napoli with the option to search for new candidates to lead the frontline. 

Napoli have been encouraged to offer £24 million plus midfielder Blerim Dzemali in a bid to sign Balotelli, who is willing to move away from AC Milan after suffering racial abuse. 

Arsenal were believed to be the front-runners for the Italian’s signature, but it has now emerged that Napoli could swiftly take the deal away from Arsenal’s hands.
