As Mario Balotelli prepares himself for the World Cup in Brazil this summer, interest for the Italian starlet is reaching dizzying heats back in England, according to the Mail.
A media frenzy regarding his potential move to Liverpool or Arsenal during this summer's transfer window sees Balotelli once more propelled into British media spotlight.
The AC Milan forward has become increasingly disgruntled with his time in Italy, claiming that he is plagued with racism in his home country. It is therefore currently under great speculation as to whether the former Manchester City star is itching to move back to England, in what would be a shock move to either Arsenal or Liverpool.
Liverpool currently find themselves facing the very real prospect of losing their star player, with both Real Madrid and Barcelona moving in for Luis Suarez in reaction to his breathtaking season for the Merseyside club.
If, and only if, they do find themselves lacking an inventive forward this summer, will Rogers entertain a bid for Balotelli. More likely seems a move to Arsenal, as although they currently are showing high interest for Karim Benzema, it is understood that Wenger is in contact with Balotelli's camp and will initiate talks in the future.
The ability of Balotelli to enhance any team is not in question - he would be a great addition to both Arsenal and Liverpool. However, as every English football fan knows, his time at Manchester City was a controversial one: a firework set off in his bathroom only 36 hours prior to a derby game, his notorious car crash only two weeks into his career at City and who could forget the bib incident whereby the young star highlighted his inability to dress himself.
Sadly he was also involved in incidents on the pitch. The most memorable being his stamp on Scott Parker back in January 2012.
However. for all his faults he is highly entertaining as a footballer and maybe, just maybe, next year he will be back in the Premier League to entertain us once more.
