It's done, Mario Balotelli has finalised a transfer to Nice after months of dilly-dallying. Liverpool were keen to get rid of the mercurial Italian who was purchased from AC Milan two years ago. Liverpool starlet Luis Alberto also sealed a transfer to Italian club Lazio.
He now joins La Liga side Deportivo La Coruna on loan and would hope that a good campaign can ensure his career is revived, which could earn him a move to a top side next season.
Brendan Rodgers has said that £6m arrival from Spain in the summer, Luis Alberto, has had a “difficult” start at Liverpool FC and has commended Iago Aspas on his professionalism.
With Daniel Sturridge out due to injury and the likes of Victor Moses and Raheem Sterling struggling for form, Luis Alberto may be Brendan Rodgers' solution.
Liverpool FC show no sign that they are looking to replace Luis Suarez , with signings like Mkhitaryan, Mignolet, Aspas and Alberto being more focused on supporting a striker rather than replacing one
