Arsenal will hold talks with the player's camp in saturday in an effort to try and bring him to the emirates this summer. The 23-year old scored winning goal for italy against England in their last World cup game and proved deadly as a striker till he was replaced. Balotelli is a player proven scoring ability but represents a big gamble if he signs for Arsenal. The striker's attitude towards play, his high temperament and his proven record of disrespect towards his managers (remember his altercation with Roberto Mancini) are one of his shortcomings as a footballer. A player who once said he doesn't know who Jack Wilshere was when asked about wilshere's glowing midfield performance during his time at Manchester City is now set to play alongside him. Balotelli though always enjoy the support of his teammates wherever he plays but his behaviour can disrupt any team's harmony even the one as high as Arsenal's. His goal scoring ability is also a cause for concern. He has just 18 goal from open play since the start of 2012-2013 season and almost goes unseen in big games. Mario Balotelli is obviously a talented player, one which Wenger can unlock his potentials but still is a gamble for one of football's most conservative manager.
