Liverpool in talks to sign Mario Balotelli

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) - Liverpool could be about to replace one controversial striker with another.

Italy international Mario Balotelli has been lined up by the Premier League club as a potential replacement for Luis Suarez, who left Anfield to join Barcelona for $130 million.

Balotelli, who spent 2 1/2 years with Manchester City up to 2013, left the club's Milanello training ground on Thursday for possibly the last time.

''Mario Balotelli left Milanello's sporting center at 1330 (local time) after saying goodbye to his teammates,'' Milan said in a statement. ''Before going through the gates, he said goodbye to members of Milan's press office.''

Balotelli scored 14 goals in 30 league appearances for Milan last season. He netted 12 times in 13 matches the previous campaign, helping the team to a third-place finish in Serie A.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said he is looking to add a striker to his squad before the transfer window shuts on Sept. 1.

Suarez was sold to Barcelona after being handed a four-month worldwide ban for biting an opponent during the World Cup.

Milan could turn its attention to FC Porto striker Jackson Martinez - who impressed at the World Cup with Colombia - as a replacement for Balotelli
