Inzaghi hopes to keep Balotelli

AC Milan boss Filippo Inzaghi has revealed he expects Arsenal target Mario Balotelli to remain with the club.

Balotelli's future at the San Siro has been the subject of speculation for some time, with reports suggesting Arsenal are planning to bring the former Manchester City forward back to the Premier League.

Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has previously indicated the club are open to a sale but Inzaghi, who replaced Clarence Seedorf at the end of last season, is keen to keep hold of Balotelli and revealed a replacement would have to be signed before the Rossoneri could entertain any offers for the 23-year-old.

"I am calm, Mario is an important player and I will try to help him improve," Inzaghi told a press conference.

"I will reset everything that has been said about him, I have no problem with him. I have to make the most of his ability.

"Will he leave? The club will decide. If he leaves then we will need a replacement because the centre-forwards are him and (Giampaolo) Pazzini. However, I believe that he will remain here."

Reports have also claimed that Arsenal are unwilling to match Balotelli's wage demands and will not make another approach unless he lowers them.
