Napoli set to make Balotelli bid


    Serie A side Napoli are set to make a “major” bid for misfiring Italian Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli in the January transfer window, according to The Metro.

    balotelli3Balotelli has been linked with the club managed by former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez in the last fortnight after his dismal start to life at Anfield and the Partenopei could be set to test Brendan Rodgers’ resolve to keep the forward with Divock Origi set to return from his loan spell next Summer.

    A £10m bid was mooted last week, but it seems that the Italian club are preparing to more than match the £16m Liverpool paid AC Milan to bring the former Manchester City back to England for a second spell in the Premiership.

    Benitez is reportedly keen to see Balotelli link up with former Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain at the San Paolo and he believes his former club can be persuaded into parting with the striker for the right price.
