Juventus are said to be monitoring Mario Balotelli's situation at Anfield, according to the Daily Mirror.
It's said they are initially looking for a loan deal, with the option to sign him for £14 million in the summer. Juventus manager Massimo Allegri, who managed the striker at AC Milan, is a keen admirer of Balotelli.
He told The Times: "We would like to recruit him, but we do not know if it is possible.

"Mario had a good season with me at AC Milan. All coaches love leading the best players."

For this deal to go through it would depend a lot on who Liverpool bring in. Manager Brendan Rodgers has continued to stand by the controversial Italian who has only scored two goals in all competitions, and none in the Premier League.
It also depends on whether Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta is willing to give the deal the go ahead. That is unlikely after he said: "Balotelli is not the player we are willing to buy, we will go forward with this group."
It's therefore looking increasingly likely that the 24-year-old will remain at Anfield until the end of the season at least.
Good record in Italy
Moving back to Serie A does look like a good fit for Balotelli. He scored 26 league goals in 43 games at AC Milan, which is almost a goal every one and a half games. He also managed 20 goals in 59 during his time at Inter Milan. Not forgetting he was a teenager throughout that three year period.
In the mean time, It's looking like he still needs to turn his form around at Anfield for the forceable with a move to Turin unlikely to happen this window.
