Cape Town - Kop flop Mario Balotelli could be on his way out of Anfield and back to Italy to join Serie A side Napoli, as rumours surrounding the future of Gonzalo Higuain continue to circulate.

According to the Daily Star, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is willing to accept as little as £10 million for the Italian striker, as the Reds continue to eye West Brom star Saido Berahino.

Berahino, who is third on the list of top goal scorers in the Premier League so far this season, will need some persuading to leave the Hawthorns, insists manager Alan Irvine.

Irvine believes Berahino will not have his head turned by the bigger clubs in the Premier League and will remain at West Brom for the good of his career

"I think Saido has the maturity to realise if he keeps doing what he does he will make progress here and all sorts of things will open up at international and club level," he said.

"If he keeps doing this, he will become a top striker and anything can happen."
