first_imgChievo have not given up hope of pulling off an audacious swoop for Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli.The Italy international is expected to leave Anfield this summer but has so far failed to seal a move to get his career back on track.It had been suggested that AC Milan would sign him permanently but they appear to have gone off the idea after he managed just one goal in 20 Serie A appearances on loan last term.Then Ajax and Besiktas were both mooted as potential admirers but neither firmed up their interest with a suitable offer.One of the most left-field rumours has been Chievo, who finished ninth in Serie A last year, although it was suggested that Balotelli would be well out of their budget.But president Luca Campedelli has refused to rule out a ‘dream’ move for the 25-year-old forward.“Dreaming doesn’t cost anything,” he is quoted as saying by the Gazzetta dello Sport.“At the moment, it does remain a dream because we know that it would be very difficult to pull off such a move.“We must take into account the obvious difficulties in economic terms but it is something we are looking at.” 1 Mario Balotelli in action for AC Milan last_img
