West Ham needs new strikers this summer. Marko Arnautovic, Lucas Perez and Andy Caroll have left the club while Jordan Hugill and Javier Hernandez are also expected to leave this summer.
The Italian impressed on loan with Marseille last season as he went on to score eight goals from 12 Ligue 1 games. Even though there is risk involved in signing the 28-year-old, he has the potential to be a success for the Hammers.
On his good days, Balotelli is unplayable. However, his attitude has been the reason why he is not considered among the best in the World.
He has prior Premier League experience with Manchester City and Liverpool which yielded mixed fortunes. During his three seasons with City, he went on to net 30 goals while he only managed four goals during one season at Anfield.
