The Italian is set to be allowed to leave Anfield if the Reds can find a buyer.
Serie A high flyers Lazio are the latest club to be linked with a January move for out-of-favour Liverpool centre forward Mario Balotelli, report the Mirror, with the Reds seemingly willing to sanction a departure for the £16 million Italian international if they can find a suitable buyer before the window closes.
Balotelli has not been a success at Anfield since he joined the club from Serie A giants AC Milan in a £16m deal during the summer.
His opportunities in Brendan Rodgers’ side are likely to be further restricted by the imminent return of Daniel Sturridge from injury, so it should come as no surprise that the club are considering letting him leave.
Lazio are well in the midst of the battle for the third and final Champions League qualification place in La Liga, following their 3-1 win over Milan on Sunday afternoon, but the Reds are still likely to have to accept a loss on the fee that they paid for Balotelli if they are to shift him.
