Premiership clubs are queuing for Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli.

Balotelli has been mentioned as part of a swap deal for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.

The London Evening Standard says Balotelli, who has also attracted interest from Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City, did not travel to London for Inter's Champions League victory at Chelsea last week after falling out with Jose Mourinho for a repeated lack of discipline but his raw talent has impressed Wenger and the Frenchman would be keen to sign the teenager.

Arsenal are expected to get Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh on a free transfer this summer but they could be tempted to further bolster their attacking options with Balotelli, whose current £25,000-a-week wages are well within the club's grasp.
