Liverpool are set for a clear run at AC Milan firebrand Mario Balotelli.

Tuttosport says Anfield could be the perfect destination for the Italian striker and suggest that his proposed move to the Gunners has hit the rocks.

Balotelli looks all but certain to leave AC Milan this summer and is said to prefer a move back to the Premier League.

Milan president Silvio Berlusconi is eager to offload Balotelli, revealing last week he had a deal to sell him to a Premier League club before Italy's disastrous World Cup run.
