Liverpool striker Fabio Borini could make his return from a shoulder injury at the end of April in time for the final few games of the season.
Borini has had a tough first season back in English football after the Reds paid more than £10million for his services in the summer.
One goal in 16 appearances has not been the return Liverpool or Borini were expecting but the Italian international has been plagued with injuries throughout.
The Merseyside club had were expecting the 21 year old to be out for the remainder of the season with this serious shoulder injury but Borini returned to outdoor training this week and could make his comeback in around six weeks’ time.
The former Chelsea forward will have trouble walking straight back into Brendan Rodgers’ starting XI however with Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson returning to form as well as new signing Philippe Coutinho hitting the ground running since his January move.
“Fabio Borini was outside for the first time today so he’s starting that progression — passing balls, running and doing ball work,” Head of Performance Glen Driscoll told the Daily Mirror.
“He’s due to be probably another six weeks from this point on.”
