Serie A side Juventus turn down chance to take Liverpool’s Mario Balotelli on loan…
Despite denying that they are trying to shift Mario Balotelli this January, Liverpool seem to be offering the misfiring striker to anyone they can.
Four Four Two journalist Adam Digby claims that the Italian forward was offered to Juventus on a loan deal this winter, but the Serie A side turned down the chance to bring him in.

Balotelli has struggled badly since joining the Premier League for his second spell, with the former Manchester City man failing to net in the Premier League at all in the first half of the season.
Merseyside manager Brendan Rodgers has seen a number of his summer signings fail to hit the ground running in the 2014/15 campaign, but the £16m splashed on the controversial striker seems to be the biggest mistake.
His poor performances have fueled speculation that Liverpool may be looking to cut their losses and offload him this January, although Rodgers has denied that he has lost patience with the underwhelming star.
They are unsurprisingly struggling to find a buyer however, and may be stuck with the lethargic striker at least until next summer.
