Liverpool will not complete a deal to sign AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli in time for the Italian to make his debut against former club Manchester City in the Premier League on Monday.
The move would have to go through by noon on Friday, but talks continue as Liverpool seek assurances about Balotelli's commitment and discipline.
The club are ready to offer a five-year deal worth more than £120,000 a week.
A fee of £16m has been agreed for the 24-year-old's transfer to Anfield.
Balotelli remains in Italy while his agent is in England trying to agree personal terms.
The Italian will only travel to Merseyside for a medical once Liverpool are satisfied the player is committed to upholding agreed standards of behaviour.
