VIDEO: £26.5m Arsenal target lit up Serie A with goal of season contender

Former Manchester City star Mario Balotelli, now at AC Milan, claimed maximum points with a golazo.

AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli, 23, scored his tenth goal of the Serie A season on Valentine's Day, the game's only goal as the Rossoneri defeated Bologna four minutes from the game's finish in what will no doubt be one of the most replayed highlights of the Italian football season.

Just two days ago, the misfit Italian, who has featured for Manchester City as well as Internazionale, had been linked with a move to Arsenal, as Arsene Wenger appears ready to commit to another big-name signing in the ilk of his Mesut Ozil capture last summer.

The speculation only heightened when, in an interview with Four Four Two, the netbuster explained: 'I miss England's fans.'

Balotelli has returned ten goals and three assists from 18 appearances in Serie A - an attacking efficiency of a goal/assist every 115 minutes.
