Arsenal are reportedly considering a double swoop in signing Mario Balotelli and Loic Remy this summer.

According to the Independent, the AC Milan striker's future at San Siro remains uncertain and the club are willing to part ways with the Italian international, just 18 months after signing him for £17m from Manchester City.

Balotelli is the Gunners' priority summer signing as Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes he can manage his on and off field antics. The Frenchman is in search of a top quality striker to partner Olivier Giroud at the Emirates.

The north London club have the services of Yaya Sanogo and Nicklas Bendtner, apart from Giroud. However, the Dane's contract at Arsenal runs down this month and he will be allowed to leave the club as a free agent.

Milan are looking to part ways with Balotelli in the summer transfer window and his situation in his homeland has alerted the clubs in England. Liverpool are also keen on landing the former City star, but the Italian striker has set his sights on signing for the Gunners.

Arsenal are preparing a £20m deal in bringing Balotelli to the Emirates this summer.

Meanwhile, the same report also claims that Wenger wants to sign Queens Park Rangers striker Remy to bolster the Gunners' strike force. The French international was on a season-long loan at Newcastle United and had an impressive season with the Magpies.

Remy's form for Alan Pardew's side has seen Newcastle make an approach for the French striker and the Tyneside club have publicly expressed their desire to sign the player. He is also attracting interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

However, the Telegraph reports the £10m-rated striker will reject a chance to join the White Hart Lane club and is desperate to join Arsenal this summer as he wants to feature in the Champions League next season.

Should Arsenal sign both Balotelli and Remy in the coming transfer window, it will strengthen the Gunners' attacking division. In addition to this, it will also give Wenger more options during the team selection.
