Agent reveals Sassuolo keen on Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli

A return to Italy is expected for Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, according to his agent's firm.

Balotelli is currently training with Liverpool's U21s.

“It's true, Sassuolo thought of him," Enzo Raiola, cousin of Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola, and a member of staff for his agency, confirmed to ilMilanista.

“But in terms of wages we're light years apart. Liverpool will never accept the figures on offer, unless nothing happens before [August] 31.

“Chievo? Yes, but these are the only two clubs in Italy who have tested the waters. Mario wants to get back into the game and feel important."
