Napoli eye Balotelli deal?

Napoli are reportedly exploring the possibility of signing Nice striker Mario Balotelli on a free transfer this summer.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Balotelli is an ‘opportunity’ for Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri as he looks to bolster his options up top.

The 27-year-old is enjoying a renaissance in southern France, having scored 33 goals in just 49 appearances since his arrival from Liverpool last year.

However, he is out of contract at the end of the season and has yet to agree an extension.

Balotelli faced Napoli in the Champions League playoffs at the start of the campaign and has made no secret of his admiration for the Partenopei.
