Italian giants to turn to Liverpool outcast

AC Milan are ready to turn to Liverpool’s Fabio Borini after offloading Mario Balotelli to the Reds, according to reports from La Gazetta dello Sport.

The Italian giants are believed to be tracking the Italian after sanctioning the £16m sale of ‘Super Mario’, while there have been rumours of a move for Chelsea’s Fernando Torres – whose salary demands may be beyond the Rossoneri.

Borini is seen as a viable option, with the 23-year-old’s salary expectations more in line with the San Siro side’s new financial plans.

Liverpool are thought to be keen to offload the player, with a £14m bid from Sunderland having been on the backburner for a while.

Milan are unlikely to offer anywhere near as much – and are angling at a loan deal – but with the Black Cats’ interest cooling Brendan Rodgers may be ready to do business.

Borini is reportedly looking to save his career on Merseyside, but the lure of returning to his homeland with one of Serie A’s most famous clubs could tempt him.
