Mario Balotelli's £16million move to Liverpool is edging closer with the Italy international set to fly to the UK later today.
After further discussions with his agent Mino Raiola this morning the Reds received the reassurances they wanted about the striker's willingness to agree to behavioural clauses in his contract.
As a result arrangements have now been made for Balotelli to travel to the North West. He will meet Brendan Rodgers face to face and begin his medical.
Personal terms are already in place with Balotelli having agreed a deal worth around £110,000 per week.
The transfer could be completed over the weekend but the 24-year-old won't be registered in time for Monday's Premier League clash with his former club Manchester City.
