Port Vale are second favourites to sign Mario Balotelli from Liverpool in the summer transfer window, according to Ladbrokes.

The odds of Balotelli moving to Wolves before the end of the summer transfer window have been slashed from 20/1 to just 6/1.

Premier League outfit West Ham United have been given odds of 16/1 to sign the former Inter Milan striker, while Scottish Premiership giants Celtic have been given odds of 33/1.

Balotelli, who is 26 years of age, is a decent striker, and he is probably too good to play in the Championship.

While a move to Wolves would certainly make the headlines, one needs to ask whether the Italian would be a good fit for the Championship club.

Balotelli spent the 2015-16 season on loan at his former club AC Milan, scoring one goal and creating 24 chances in 20 Serie A appearances.
