Sky Sport Italia claim Puma will help Arsenal to sign Mario Balotelli from Milan.
The striker is sponsored by Puma, who also announced a partnership with Arsenal in January.
Balotelli’s future at Milan has been thrown into doubt after President Silvio Berlusconi confessed it was still to be decided.
This evening Sky Sport Italia pundit Mario Giunta suggested “Arsenal are very interested in Balotelli and Arsene Wenger would do anything to bring him to London.
“This operation could be pushed forward by the technical sponsor, who Balotelli shares with Arsenal.
“To have Balotelli in the Premier League for Arsenal would be an important investment.”
SuperMario won the Premier League title with Manchester City and left for Milan, the club he has always supported, in January 2013.
This is not the first time that the Puma link has been mentioned with regards to Arsenal, as Metro also reported on a plan to bring Balo to the Emirates earlier this year.
