MILAN (AP) - AC Milan has not ruled out selling Italy striker Mario Balotelli.

Vice President Barbara Berlusconi on Monday called Balotelli a “great player,” but added: “In my mind, I don’t believe that someone can be irreplaceable. We will see what happens.”

Balotelli has four years left on his contract at Milan. He has been linked to a return to the Premier League, with Arsenal reportedly interested.

The forward joined Milan from Manchester City in January 2013 and helped the club to third place in Serie A that season. Balotelli scored 14 goals in 30 league matches last season but Milan finished eighth and failed to qualify for European competition.


The 23-year-old player is at the World Cup in Brazil, where he has scored one goal in two matches.
