POLL: Is Balotelli a good or bad idea for Arsenal?

Mario Balotelli playing for AC Milan

Arsenal have been linked with a big money, high profile summer move for AC Milan's Mario Balotelli.

News is everywhere over Arsenal’s apparent interest in signing controversial striker Mario Balotelli at the end of the season.

The Gunners need a high profile front man, they have the cash to spend and reports suggest that Arsenal officials have already met with the Italian’s agent to discuss a possible transfer.

Arsene Wenger has a balance to judge. He has to weigh up the physical benefits of bringing Balotelli into his side against the inevitable consequences of his ego and actions which plague him away from the field.

Whether he’s setting off fireworks in his bathroom or trying to deliberately score a goal with a back heel, there is always some sort of controversy which surrounds him that could be the main barrier against Wenger commissioning a move.

We thought we’d let you decide and vote on whether you think Balotelli is a good or a bad idea for Arsenal football club and whether he’s worth the huge fee and the controversy that would come hand in hand with a high profile move.
