Mario Balotelli's agent insists it is "never too late" for the Liverpool striker as he looks to find a way out of Anfield.

Mino Raiola has been tasked with finding a destination for the 25-year-old Italy international, who has not travelled with the Reds' squad to the United States after being told by manager Jurgen Klopp he has no future at the club.

"In life it's never too late," Raiola told Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

"If you think Mario makes me despair, you're wrong because his life has improved a lot and now he just needs the right opportunity.

"Where will he go? I'm saying nothing. Let's see what happens. I won't close the door on any solution. That goes for Mario and all my players.

"I listen to what is offered to me and then I decide along with them."

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard insists there is currently "no job opportunity" for him at the club despite being in contact with manager Jurgen Klopp.

The 36-year-old midfielder is into the final six months of his contract with Los Angeles Galaxy and accepts his playing days are numbered.

And while there has been much speculation about him linking up with his former club in some capacity, nothing is in the pipeline at the moment.

"People need to understand that Jurgen Klopp is his own man, he's got his own team of people around him, that he is very happy and content with," Gerrard exclusively told virtual reality company Laduma.

"Of course I've got a huge Liverpool connection and Liverpool is in my heart and always will be but there's nothing to really comment on.

"There's no future decision to work with Klopp, I get on really well with him, we're in contact but there's no job opportunity there at the moment.

"There is absolutely nothing to say on my future beyond this MLS season at the moment.

"I know I'm in the twilight, I know I'm coming to the end pretty soon.

"I just want to try and enjoy every last moment really. The one thing I'm going to miss [is] walking on to the pitch.

"I'm going to miss that buzz very much because that's what I play the game for."
