The striker has been in poor form since signing for the Merseyside club, and it has been rumoured that manager Brendan Rodgers is looking to offload him so that he is able to bring in a different forward to bolster the ranks. Allegri used to manage the Italian when he was in charge of AC Milan, and would seem to want him again.

“We would like to recruit him, but we do not know if it’s possible,’ The Times quote Allegri. “Mario had a good season with me. Unfortunately he’s built up a character outside the world of football and everyone talks about what he does off the pitch. All coaches love to lead the best players.

“But Balotelli is a Liverpool player and I think first he has to think about playing well, sacrificing and giving his best – especially to show everyone who says he is an important player.”

The 24-year-old is yet to score for Liverpool this season, but the Italian giants are apparently still willing to get him on loan with an option to sign permanently for £14 million. Whether the Reds would be willing to let the mercurial striker go just five months after signing him would be a different matter.
