MILAN (AP) — AC Milan vice president Barbara Berlusconi has not ruled out selling Italy striker Mario Balotelli.

On Monday, Berlusconi says "Balotelli is a great player but in my mind I don't believe that someone can be irreplaceable, we will see what happens."

Balotelli, who has four years left on his contract at Milan, has been linked with 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 a third-place finish in Serie A that season.

Balotelli scored 14 goals in 30 league matches last season but Milan finished eighth and failed to qualify for Europe.

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