Liverpool transfers: Fiorentina fans react angrily to Mario Balotelli reports

Fiorentina fans make their feelings known after their club is linked with a move for Liverpool flop Mario Balotelli

Fiorentina supporters have reacted angrily to reports that Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli could be heading to Florence.

The Serie A club have been linked with a move for the struggling Italy international in recent days as Brendan Rodgers looks to offload the £16m signing.

The 24-year-old striker scored just one Premier League goal in 16 top-flight appearances last season after he joined from AC Milan.

Fiorentina were reported to be weighing up a move for Balotelli, but La Viola fans have made their feelings clear in the ancient Italian city.

The above banner reads: “You are a man without honour. Florence doesn’t want you.”

Balotelli, who is being linked with a potential return to Serie A in the summer, scored his only Premier League goal in a 3-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in March.

The Liverpool striker managed to net four times in 26 appearances in all competitions over the course of the 2014/15 campaign.

The Italian won the Premier League title with Manchester City in 2012.
