Mario Balotelli is really on his way to Ligue 1. The Italian striker has been linked with countless clubs and been involved with false dawns this summer in finding a future away from Liverpool FC. It appears that Balotelli's move to Nice is getting closer.

There's not been much news on an agreement between Liverpool and Nice, but the 25-year-old has arrived in Nice for a medical. It looks that a moves looks almost certain otherwise his presence in France would be quite silly considering Liverpool, Mario Balotelli, and Mino Raiola would all be extremely invested in seeing a deal take place.

Yann Pécheral—a journalist for RMC Sport in France—has confirmed that Balotelli is in Nice for a medical. More information on the nature of the deal and any agreement is still to come, but one of the most protracted departures from Liverpool in recent years should be soon completed later today.
