Liverpool’s strikers may have struggled in front of goal this season, but no one seems to think that Fabio Borini is the answer to our problems.
The Italian’s work ethic cannot be questioned, but there remain doubts over whether he possesses the requisite quality to lead the line for a side competing for top honours.
The 23 year-old was strongly linked with a switch to Sunderland in the summer, where he spent last season on loan, and another temporary switch could be on the cards.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool could send Borini to Inter Milan in January on loan until the end of the season. The presumed hope from both parties would be that he could resurrect the goalscoring form from his AS Roma days that prompted Brendan Rodgers to shell out for him.
However, given the current turmoil surrounding the Nerazzurri – Walter Mazzarri looks set to be replaced as manager by former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini in the San Siro hotseat – the Serie A giants’ plans could certainly change.
Borini’s Liverpool future seems to be shrouded in as much mystery as ever.
