Mario Balotelli is poised to head back to Serie A and re-join AC Milan on a season-long loan deal from Liverpool, according to reports.

La Gazzetta dello Sport have stated that Milan boss Sinisa Mihajlovic has already met the out-of-favor Liverpool striker and he could be in the stands to watch his former side in action against Fiorentina in their season opener at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

When questioned about a potential deal, Milan's general manager Adriano Galliani refused to rule out a move for the forward who scored 30 goals in 54 games during a two-year spell with the Rossoneri.
