Torino winger Alessio Cerci is anxiously waiting for AC Milan to settle Mario Balotelli's future.

Torino winger Alessio Cerci is anxiously waiting for AC Milan to settle Mario Balotelli's future.

Balotelli's agent, Mino Raiola, is on Merseyside today for talks with Liverpool about a loan deal for the former Manchester City striker.

Tuttosport says Milan are determined to offload Balotelli and if Raiola cannot strike terms with Liverpool, he will fly to France for talks with AS Monaco officials.

If Milan can get Balotelli off the books - whether in a straight sale or loan - it will free up funds to move to Cerci.

Toro want €13 million to sell the Italy international and are willing to reduce the cash component if Milan include Bryan Cristante in their offer.
