Champions League will prompt Ajax to go after Liverpool striker Balotelli

Dutch giants Ajax will make a move for Mario Balotelli if they qualify for the Champions League this season.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Peter Bosz's side will go after the Liverpool striker if they get past the play-off round for Europe's premier club competition.

Italian enigma Balotelli does not feature in Jurgen Klopp's plans for season 2016/17 and the Reds are keen to offload him, either on loan or permanently, if they can find a suitor.

It is understood that Ajax are showing interest and will look to open talks with the 25-year-old once they know their European fate.

The reigning Eredivisie runners-up recently lost top scorer Arkadiusz Milik to Napoli and are eager to bring in an affordable option to fill the void.
