Liverpool have been handed a MAJOR transfer boost after learning that Azzurri bad-boy Mario Balotelli is available.
Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport revealed that the former Manchester City striker has been placed on the transfer list by Italian giants AC Milan.
Liverpool will be expected to meet Milan's £24m valuation of the striker, however they face stern competition from affluent French side Monaco to secure his services.
Arsenal had been strongly linked with a move for Balotelli in recent weeks, however claims were readily rubbished by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.
Considering his experience in the upper echelons of world football, £24m could represent a steal for Brendan Rodgers who has already spent big on England star Adam Lallana.
The Italian's trophy cabinet resembles that of a successful veteran rather than a developing 23-year-old.
The accomplished youngster has already won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and numerous domestic Italian trophies.
