Former Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli is reportedly in talks with Brazilian Serie A outfit Flamengo.
According to Sky Italia, the controversial Balotelli has been offered a two-and-a-half-year deal.
The deal is far from completion as both parties are still in negotiation over the transfer.
Italian international Balotelli is a free agent after his contract with French Ligue 1 giants Olympique Marseille ended this summer.
He signed a six-month contract during the winter transfer window and the former AC Milan and Inter Milan hitman did well during his time at Marseille.
Mario Balotelli was at fellow French top flight side OGC Nice before he fell out with his manager Patrick Vieira.
His contract at OGC Nice was terminated and that enabled him to leave on a free transfer at the start of this year.
He joined Marseille as a free agent and on a short-term during the winter transfer window in January.
Mario Balotelli was a Liverpool player for just one season before he signed for Italian Serie A giants AC Milan in the summer of 2015.
The Italian striker was signed as the direct replacement for Luis Suarez in 2014.
Luis Suarez had gone to Barcelona from Liverpool for a fee believed to be around £75m.
