"I don't see anyone as strong as he is" - Agent speaks out after former Liverpool striker is linked with Arsenal


Mario Balotelli's agent says his client would fit perfectly at Napoli as only Italy's Lorenzo Insigne is as strong as he is in their offensive department.

Mino Raiola has confirmed that he is ready to sit down and have a chat with club president Aurelio De Laurentiis.

But if Napoli decide to enter the race they will face competition as Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for the former Manchester City and Liverpool striker.

"Where will he play next season? Oh Roma, Napoli… Napoli have four strikers at the moment, but we'll see if they are still there in August…," Raiola told reporters.

"You'd have to ask Carlo Ancelotti. In any case, apart from Lorenzo Insigne, I don't see anyone as strong as Mario up there, then it's up to [President Aurelio] De Laurentiis to decide if he wants to reinforce the squad or not.

"I have a special rapport with De Laurentiis.

"So far we haven't completed many deals and don't always see eye to eye, but that doesn't mean anything. Napoli became great again thanks to hm and if he wants to see me, I am at his disposal."
