Italian considers Liverpool move
New Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to bring in a new striker to complement his existing attacking options, and is said to be a fan of the Italy international.
The Northern Irish manager worked with Borini during a loan spell at Swansea, and sees the sprightly forward as the man to end the Merseyside club’s woe in front of goal.
Borini impressed on loan at the Stadio Olimpico last term, and since the Giallorossi have bought his full ownership rights from Parma.
Roma have confirmed that Liverpool have made an enquiry, whilst Borini’s agent Marco De Marchi has admitted that the player will have the final say over a potential move.
“Roma has informed us of Liverpool’s interest in the boy. Now it’s up to Fabio to have his say,” the representative told Radio Radio, translated to English by Sky Sports.
“We were alerted by Roma of the existence of this deal. I cannot honestly tell you the details but, as [Walter] Sabatini has already said, we’re now seriously considering it.
“Would the player want to go to Liverpool? Honestly, I don’t want to commit myself as there will be more news in the coming days. Wait for that,” he concluded.
