Liverpool are planning a lucrative contract offer for Inter Milan starlet Mario Balotelli.

Corriere dello Sport says Liverpool are aware that Inter are struggling to secure the 17 year-old striker to a new deal.

Inter are offering Balotelli £350,000-a-year to re-sign and Liverpool are ready to make a superior bid to bring the youngster to Anfield in the summer.

Chelsea have also made enquiries after the teenager in recent weeks.
