Balotelli is expected to complete a £16m deal to Anfield shortly, with Italian giants AC Milan confirming on their website that he is going to leave the club.
But the imminent move has not stopped Rodgers from being linked to another striker, with Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio stating Liverpool have held fresh negotiations with free agent Samuel Eto'o, who has been linked with a move to Anfield all summer.

After the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, Liverpool currently only have Daniel Sturridge and Rickie Lambert as the only first-team strikers in the squad.
The potential arrivals of Balotelli and Eto'o would hugely improve the squad's depth, as they prepare to challenge in both the Premier League and Europe - last season, of course, they were not involved in the Champions League.
Eto'o brings a wealth of European experience, having won the competition twice with Barcelona and once with Inter Milan.
The Cameroonian scored 12 goals for Chelsea last season.
