Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keeping tabs on Inter Milan starlet Mario Balotelli.

The Sun says Arsenal scouts watched the Italy hitman in Inter's 5-0 win at Genoa last weekend.

Balotelli, 19, is highly regarded by Inter boss Jose Mourinho but is behind Gabriel Milito, Samuel Eto'o and David Suazo in the San Siro pecking order.

But he fits in perfectly with the profile of Wenger's young team - and it is no secret that the Frenchman wants to add another frontman to his squad.

Balotelli, on the other hand, is understood to be willing to consider a move to London to get more regular first-team action.
