Social media reacts to Balotelli to Liverpool rumours.
Read more Balotelli Liverpool latest.
Twitter has been alive with reaction as Liverpool look like closing in on one of the most exciting signings of the summer in the form of AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli.
In a deal rumoured to be worth £16m, the Italian international looks like becoming the club’s replacement for Luis Suarez upfront, with the equally talented and equally controversial Uruguayan forward joining Barcelona for £75m earlier in the transfer window.
Many have hailed the potential deal as a bargain, while many are simply excited to see the eccentric striker back in the Premier League again after he wowed fans of English football during his time with Manchester City.
Liverpool’s psychiatrist Steve Peters faces the hardest task of his career with Balotelli.

£16m is nothing for a talent like Balotelli’s. Well worth the ‘risk’ at that price. — Miguel Delaney (@MiguelDelaney) August 21, 2014
If Balotelli signs, Rickie Lambert might already have missed his only penalty for Liverpool.

Liverpool going to sign a player who has been racially abused a lot. That’s gonna confuse the hell out of their fanbase.
