Barnsley have made an enquiry into signing former Italy striker Mario Balotelli who is a free agent after leaving Brescia.

The 30-year-old former Manchester City and Liverpool striker is currently without a club after having his contract with hometown Serie A side Brescia terminated because he repeatedly missed training sessions in June and July.

Conversations have been held between Balotelli’s representatives and Barnsley’s co-chairmen Chien Lee and Paul Conway, but talks have not gone any further.

The former Italy striker has been training with Serie D side Franciacorta to maintain his fitness.

Balotelli, who left England to return to Italy in 2015, was linked to a move to Barnsley’s Sky Bet Championship rivals Watford last month by newspaper reports.
