ALMOST AGREED: Mario Balotelli lined up for bizarre transfer to 12th club with Arsenal star tipped to join him



MARIO BALOTELLI is being linked with ANOTHER transfer less than 12 months after signing for Swiss side FC Sion.

The former Manchester City and Liverpool striker, 32, signed a two-year deal at the beginning of the season and has netted six goals in 18 games for the club.

But he is already being mooted with a potential exit this summer as interest from Romania emerges.

According to Romanian outlet GSP, Rapid Bucharest are keen to strike a deal with the Italian forward.


However, they have been told they will need to pay Balotelli £880,000 up front in order to acquire his signature.

A move to Bucharest would make it the 12TH transfer of the attacker’s journeyman career.

It would also be his SIXTH club in just four and a half years.

And he could be joined at Rapid by Arsenal youngster Catalin Cirjan.


The 20-year-old Romanian midfielder has been training with Mikel Arteta’s side.

He was even included on the bench in four of their Europa League games this season.

But he is yet to receive any minutes for the first team.

And a loan move to Bucharest is now being touted as an option for the 2023/24 campaign.


Cirjan has registered four goals and one assist in 36 appearances for Arsenal’s U21s.

He has also been capped by Romania’s U16s, but refused to turn out for their U20 side after being called up.

He later claimed he felt “unwanted” by the national team.
