Reports in Italy claim that Mario Balotelli will make a loan move to Lazio if they qualify for the Champions League group stage.
Balotelli has been told he has no future at Anfield and has been linked with several clubs back in Serie A.
Tuttomercatoweb are claiming that the Liverpool striker has agreed to move to the Rome club on the proviso that they beat Bayer Leverkusen in the qualifying phase.
Lazio beat Leverkusen 1-0 in the first leg played in Italy this week and will head to Germany next week for the second game.
The article claims that Liverpool will pay as much as 70% of his wage while he is at Lazio next season and there is no hint of a permanent exit.
Lazio can’t commit to the deal until they know that Champi0ns League money will be in their coffers for the season.
