RICKIE Lambert and Fabio Borini look set to make an exit from Liverpool, along with Mario Balotelli, with the arrival of Christian Benteke at Anfield.
The 33-year-old English forward Lambert has been linked with a move to West Brom, while the 24-year-old Italian Borini is said to have drawn interest from West Ham although no formal offers have been made, according to independent.co.uk.
Raheem Sterling scored in his Manchester City debut,a friendly match with Roma in Australia, just a week after the £49m transfer from Liverpool.
Balotelli congratulated Sterling on twitter, but Liverpool fans weren’t too pleased.
Well done @sterling31 ! Best answer ????. Keep it up.— Mario Balotelli (@FinallyMario) July 21, 2015
The post got immediate reaction from fans and Anfield Chat on twitter told the Italian it's time for him to go.
The 24-year-old Balotelli, expected to be sent on a loan move, according to independent.co.uk, with an option to make the transfer permanent, had a follow-up message urging fans to keep supporting Sterling.
