Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that there is absolutely no chance of Italy international Mario Balotelli moving to Anfield this month.

The AC Milan striker was linked with a switch to Merseyside after Rodgers praised the former Manchester City man last week, but the Reds boss insists nothing should have been read into his comments.

Rodgers has already signed Lille striker Divock Origi and Southampton's Rickie Lambert following Luis Suarez's transfer to Barcelona, and said of the possibility of Balotelli moving to Anfield: "I can categorically tell you Mario will not be at Liverpool.

"In my last press conference I was asked a question about Mario Balotelli and I talked about what a talent he was and what an excellent player he was. And the next day it was wrote as if we were signing him.

"I just gave my perception of him as a player. It shouldn't be transmitted in to us signing the player."

Rodgers has also signed Emre Can, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and Lazar Markovic this summer and has not written off the prospect of more signings before the transfer window shuts in four weeks' time.

He added: "We still have a few bits and pieces we would like to do to solidify the group, but there's no names or definite signings yet."
