Reports claim the on-loan AC Milan striker is a target for West Ham.
Balotelli is currently owned by Liverpool, who are desperate to get him off the books and his next destination could be Uptown Park where he could be linking up with Nigeria and Chelsea on-loan star Victor Moses.
The Italian has flopped since his £16m move from Milan in August 2014.
He managed just four goals in his debut campaign at Anfield and then-boss Brendan Rodgers shipped him back to his former club on a season-long deal.
But according to the Brentwood Gazette, he is now on West Ham’s radar as they hunt for attacking options.
Manager Slaven Bilic wants to add a new frontman after Andy Carroll suffered another injury.
Balotelli 25, first moved to English football with Manchester City in 2010, helping the club win the FA Cup and Premier League.
