Mario Balotelli is ready to restart his career, but the question remains, at which club will this happen? Today it came out that the player’s agent, Mino Raiola, has offered his client’s services to Everton, the bitter rivals of Balotelli’s current club Liverpool. Bookmakers have updated odds on where the complex character will play following the summer transfer window.

Skybet have assessed the chances of Balotelli leaving Liverpool for local rivals Everton and have priced such a move up at a very short 18/25. Judging by these odds, the chances of the Italian moving across Stanley Park is more than likely.

Punters who aren’t so sure Balotelli will be able to secure a move away from Liverpool, can back their instincts at a respectable 4/1.

Elsewhere, the odds on Balotelli moving to Bologna are 5/1 whilst a move to Wolves, who play in the Championship, are 8/1. For the more optimistic punter in these situations, a move to Arsenal can be backed at odds of 16/1.

Skybet have also rated Balotelli’s chances of signing for Turkish side Besiktas at the 25/1 mark. In August the chances of this were far greater and were rated at 6/1, but since then that potential deal seems to have gone cold.

In the early months of the transfer window, Italian side Chievo were considered the favourites to sign Balotelli and you could get this move for 2/1. However, the price on that particular move happening has risen dramatically and is now as big as 33/1 – the same as his chances of moving to Ajax or back to former club Inter Milan.
