The Italian endured a tough first season at Anfield, with injuries preventing him from cementing himself a place in the starting XI.
With the arrivals of a number of competitors this summer on Merseyside, the 22-year-old’s chances of pushing on this term also look bleak.
As a result, Black Cats chief Paolo Di Canio is keen to offer him an escape route with a loan deal.
Sunderland suffered defeat at the hands of newly promoted Crystal Palace over the weekend, with their only goal coming courtesy of star striker Steven Fletcher.
Di Canio is keen to add another threat in the attacking third, and believes that his compatriot is the ideal man to boost his attacking options.
Although Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has claimed that Borini will not be leaving, he may be tempted to change his mind with Victor Moses set to complete a loan move to the club from Chelsea.
The youngster only switched to Liverpool from Roma last summer in a £10m deal.
Meanwhile, Stephane Sessegnon is set to leave the Stadium of Light, with a move to the Middle East edging closer.
Would Fabio Borini benefit from a loan move to Sunderland?
