Italy international forward Mario Balotelli is set to return to Liverpool at the end of the season, according to calciomercato.com.
The 25-year-old, who has 33 international caps for his country, has failed to shine during his season-long loan spell at AC Milan this term.
Balotelli, who cost the Reds £16m back in August 2014 from the Serie A giants, has managed to find the back of the net just twice in ten appearances in all competitions for his former club this campaign so far.
Last summer, Jurgen Klopp’s side offloaded the fiery Italian to Milan for his second spell with the club, with an option to buy Balotelli at the end of the current campaign for €7-8m.
It seems Milan coach Sinisa Mihajlovic hasn’t been impressed enough by the striker’s performances this season to warrant the Liverpool flop a permanent return at the San Siro, meaning he is increasingly likely to arrive back at Anfield this summer.
