Mario Balotelli set to complete Liverpool medical at Melwood today [James Pearce, Echo]

Mario Balotelli was pictured outside Melwood last night, which provoked hysteria on the streets of Liverpool, but the deal isn’t quite done just yet.

The Italian still has to meet with Brendan Rodgers to discuss the nitty gritty, and there are even reports that Liverpool have Eto’o lined up as back up should Balotelli fall through.

James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo reports that Balo is set to complete his Liverpool this Saturday afternoon, which will take the transfer one step closer to fruition.
