Sampdoria have confirmed they want to take Kop flop Mario Balotelli back to Italy in the summer, according to the Daily Mirror.
Liverpool will look to offload Balotelli at the end of the season and the former Manchester City striker has managed just four goals since joining from AC Milan last August.
Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero said: “Would I take Balotelli to Sampdoria? Yes.
“If he is here then he would again start scoring goals.”
