Metro have Liverpool fans looking seriously pleased here in the Football Transfer Tavern after claiming that Napoli could well make a huge January offer for Mario Balotelli.
The Italian international striker has struggled since joining the Reds in the summer from AC Milan and despite his form getting worse and worse, we think that the fact that a club are willing to offer some money for the forward is an chance not to be missed.
Balotelli might be brilliant at times but those times are coming fewer and further between and the Reds simply need to have a forward who can score and who manager Brendan Rodgers can depend on – and that will never be Balotelli.
Getting rid of the forward would leave Liverpool with some cash but they would then have the quandary of who to buy as a replacement.
Gonzalo Higuain – of Napoli himself – would be an option but quite if the forward would be willing to make a move to a club who are not challenging for the Premier League title remains to be seen.
Qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League would be a massive boost for the Reds and could well attract a better calibre of player come the winter.
Liverpool fans. Would you take any offer that comes in for Balotelli or does he deserve more chances to impress? Let us know your thoughts below.
