The Reds are keen to speed up a deal to sign Belgian youngster Divock Origi, who is currently on loan at Lille from Anfield after sealing a transfer to the Premier League this summer.
However, with Balotelli in poor form since joining Liverpool from AC Milan, Brendan Rodgers wants to sign Origi as soon as possible to save his side’s fortunes this season.
Still, it is thought that a move is unlikely as Lille do not expect to be able to persuade the Italian international to make the step down to a smaller club.
