Balo backed to move

Mario Balotelli

Juventus are now into 2/1 from 10/1 to sign Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli following reports that Massimiliano Allegri is interested in taking the 24-year-old back to Italy on an initial loan spell until the end of the season with a view to a permanent £14 million switch in the summer.

The former Manchester City striker has failed to score a Premier League goal so far this season and has recently found himself on the bench following his return from suspension for off-field matters.

Liverpool continue to be linked with bids for strikers as the transfer window hots up however with the return of Daniel Sturridge believed to be imminent, Brendan Rodgers is open to the idea of Balotelli leaving this month without another frontman coming in.

Mario Balotelli’s club after the January window:

Juventus – 2/1 (from 10/1)

Inter – 6/1

Napoli – 8/1

Olympiakos – 10/1
