Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has told striker Mario Balotelli to find a new club.
The Italian, 25, spent last season on loan at AC Milan but has now returned to Liverpool for pre-season training.
The former Manchester City striker has scored four goals for the Reds sincejoining the club in 2014.
“He’s not at the stage of his career where he should be battling with four or five players for one or two positions,” said Klopp.
“So it’s clear we need a solution. There will be a club who would be happy to have the new Mario Balotelli.”
Balotelli scored just three goals in a 23-game loan spell at the San Siro last season, and was not named in Italy’s Euro 2016 squad.
Meanwhile, defender Martin Skrtel is set to leave Liverpool for Turkish side Fenerbahce.
The move is expected to be completed on Wednesday, ending the 31-year-old Slovak’s eight-year stay at Liverpool.
