Agent of Liverpool striker confident forward will seal switch to European giant

Mario BalotelliMario BalotelliMario BalotelliLiverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are assessing the latest gossip in the bar this morning, amidst claims a big-name striker is in-talks for an exit.

Sky Sports state the agent of Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, Mino Raiola, has held talks with European giants Besiktas and is ‘quite sure’ the Italian forward will sign for the Turkish side.

“I offered Mario to Besiktas and I’m waiting for their answer. But I’m quite sure the transfer will happen as the president already assured me in the past that he would do everything he can to sign him.”

Balotelli joined Liverpool for £16m after the 2014 World Cup, in what many saw as a gamble, and the controversial striker didn’t impress at Anfield, eventually being loaned back to former employers AC Milan at the end of his first season.

However, the Italian side are not keen on a permanent return for the Italian international after he scored just three goals in 23 appearances for the San Siro giant.

Our landlord feels that Balotelli will thrive if he moves to a smaller club, where he can build himself up again, as he states the striker still has a wealth of talent to offer.

Liverpool fans, what would be the best course of action for Balotelli? Let us know in the comments below!
