Balotelli On Liverpool Radar

Liverpool are in talks with AC Milan to sign former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers wants the Italy international, 24, to strengthen his attack after last season’s top scorer Luis Suarez joined Barcelona.
Balotelli moved to Milan for £19m from City last year and has scored 30 goals in 54 games for the Serie A club.
Liverpool travel to Etihad Stadium in their next Premier League match on Monday.
Balotelli was a big hit with City supporters during his first spell in England, helping the club win a first league title since 1968.
But he was also in the headlines for several off-the-pitch incidents including a training-ground bust-up with then-manager Roberto Mancini.
In his second season in Manchester, he scored only three goals in 20 games.
The striker agreed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Milan in January 2013, and played for Italy at the World Cup in Brazil.
He was heavily linked with Arsenal earlier in the summer, but after bringing in Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona for £35m, Arsene Wenger ruled out signing another forward.
Liverpool have so far brought in only one front man for the new campaign, signing Rickie Lambert from Southampton for £4m.
Balotelli would be guaranteed Champions League football at Liverpool, who finished runners-up to City in the Premier League last term.
