Sampdoria express Balotelli interest

Mario Balotelli news

Sampdoria keen on Balotelli

Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero has said that he would relish the chance to sign Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli during the summer transfer window.

The Italy international joined the Reds from AC Milan last summer, and has since then struggled to deliver the goods infront of goal.

Ferrero has now admitted that he would like to sign up the former Manchester City star so long as he agrees to the club's wage package.

"Balotelli is a great player," he told reporters. "At Sampdoria he would have the opportunity to relaunch his career in a city where he would have less pressure.

"I like him so much, but I heard he earns €10m (£7m)-a-year at Liverpool, while here he would have to settle for €1m (£700,000)."
