Inter quash rumours of Balotelli moving to Arsenal

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has rejected reports linking striker Mario Balotelli with a move to Arsenal in January.

The 19-year-old has caught Arsene Wenger's eye after scoring four goals in 11 league appearances this season, but has struggled to secure a regular place in the starting line-up under coach Jose Mourinho.

Moratti insists the striker is not for sale and Balotelli has a future at the San Siro.

"Certainly Balotelli is not on the market and will not be on the market," Moratti told Gazetta dello Sport. "There is something to adjust between him, the team and the coach, his behaviour in particular, but this is due to his age.

"It's nothing serious, but it takes a certain continuity in getting used to living together with your team-mates, the trainer and certain rules. I don't believe it's anything dramatic.

"We base this assumption on the ability of the player to understand things and Mourinho's ability to make him grow up in such a way as to be useful to the club."

On Tuesday, Arsene Wenger revealed he is likely to sign a new striker in the January transfer window after the news that Robin van Persie will miss most of the season with an ankle ligament injury.
