Palmero fans want Balotelli

Liverpool have only a week left of the transfer window to get 26-year-old Mario Balotelli off their books but may have found hope in Serie A club Palermo.

Signed for £16m in 2014, Mario Balotelli has managed only one Premier League goal in a dismal spell which has seen his stock plummet.

Palermo lost their opening game of the Seria A season at home to Sassuolo this weekend and fans today left a banner outside their stadium, urging the club to sign the enigmatic Italian frontman.

The banner (below) reads “Balotelli in the squad“. This may give Liverpool fans some hope of ridding their club of Mario Balotelli.

Balotelli not wanted at Liverpool

With one year left on his three-year deal, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made it very clear that there is no future for Mario Balotelli at Liverpool FC.

He spent last season on loan at AC Milan but only managed one league goal.
