Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is considering a shock move for AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli.Tuttosport says Balotelli is the man Rodgers believes can fill Luis Suarez's boots.

The Italian hot-shot is one of the most sought-after players in Europe with Arsenal, Tottenham, Napoli and Fiorentina chasing the striker.

Balotelli's agent, Mino Raiola, has hinted that Balotelli is keen to return back to England.

He said: "Maybe it was a mistake to bring Mario back to Italy.

"For him it is essential to go where he is loved, and at AC Milan some people love him and some do not."

If Arsenal stall on a move for Balotelli then Liverpool would lead the race to sign the controversial former Manchester City star.
