Mario Balotelli has led an interesting life, whether it be setting off fireworks in his own bathroom or scoring twice against Germany in the Euro 2012 semi-final, the Italian forward has a lot of stories to tell.
However, one thing that he is likely to be keeping quiet about is the fact that West Bromwich Albion are believed to have no interest in signing him.
The local paper for the Black Country, the Express and Star, is reporting that there has been no contact from the Hawthorns in regards to bringing in Balotelli.
Having the Baggies distance themselves so quickly will come as a blow, especially due to the lack of attacking threats they possess.
The Midlanders have scored 22 Premier League goals this season, with only Aston Villa managing less, and found the net once in their last three matches across all competitions.
This is a big downfall for a player who has been signed for a combined fee of £48m in his career, especially as AC Milan are looking to terminate his loan.
All this is bad news for Balotelli, but it will be good news for his parent club.
Having the charismatic striker back in their ranks would boost the squad at no expense and giving them an experienced Premier League goal getter to provide quality backup.
The 25-year-old has netted 21 times in the English top-flight in 43 only starts and clearly has a good enough eye for goal.
Daniel Sturridge, Danny Ings and Divock Origi are both currently out with injuries, while Christian Benteke isn’t favoured by Jurgen Klopp leaving the Reds without a wealth of striking options.
Balotelli would be another option for Klopp to call on and the forward would likely welcome the chance to get some playing time given his lack of appearances for Milan this season.
The loanee has only represented the Serie A giants six times throughout the course of this campaign, starting just two of those games.
