Mario Balotelli's agent has flown to England as the AC Milan striker closes in on a switch to Liverpool.
The Reds ramped up their interest in Balotelli yesterday, opening talks with Milan over a loan deal before being told he would only leave in a permanent deal.
Italian reports suggest a £17.6million bid has gone in, and now Gianluca Di Marzio says the striker's agent Mino Raiola has flown to England to work on the transfer.
It's thought that Liverpool's opening offer is short of Milan's asking price, but Raiola is pushing to get his client a move to Anfield.
The former Manchester City hitman is yet to decide whether he wants to move back to the Premier League but the lure of Champions League football could prove difficult to turn down.
