Serie A side Crotone are set to offer Mario Balotelli an Anfield escape route.
It’s been a torrid summer for the Italian striker, with no clubs seemingly willing to take a chance on a forward who has scored just two league goals in the last two seasons combined.
That led to him returning to Melwood for pre-season training, with some fans on social media even suggesting he should be given one final chance to impress.
We don’t agree with those sentiments, and luckily it seems Crotone will be coming to our rescue.
Their club president Raffaele Vrenna has claimed he has started talks with Balotelli’s agent, Mino Raiola.
“I made a phone call to agent Mino Raiola for Balotelli,” he said.
“Crotone are the ideal environment for young talent to grow and express themselves.
“We could be the right place to revive an incredible talent like that of Balotelli, who has unfortunately just experienced a couple of difficult seasons.” (via Mirror).
