Mario Balotelli

Former Manchester City and highly controversial striker Mario Balotelli has rejuvenated his free-falling career in the just concluded season as he was able to score and make assists for his OGC Nice teammates.

The Italy international was able to score 44 goals in just 66 games, scoring a goal in every 1.5 minutes of action with the Ligue 1 side.

His impressive goalscoring ratio has won him a place in Italy squad under Roberto Mancini, who was his manager during their time at the Etihad Stadium.

Apart from earning him a place in Italy squad, Balotelli’s blistering form is attracting top European clubs – including Arsenal.

New Arsenal boss Unai Emery is reportedly eyeing a move for the former Liverpool and Manchester City player in the summer.

Though getting ‘Super Mario’ will surely add more depth to the Gunners attacking line, the player’s attitude is one aspect that could bring division into the club’s dressing room.

The Italian striker is known for his indiscipline actions and that could distract Emery from concentrating on his mission to have a successful debut season at the Emirates stadium.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mktarryan, Mesut Ozil, Alex Iwobi, Alexandre Lacazette, and Danny Welbeck, Arsenal’s attacking prowess is equipped enough to cause havoc to any defense in the League next season.
