Fabio Borini’s Liverpool career is coming to its end, with the Italian 24-year-old closing in on a move to Serie A side Lazio, reports the Mirror.
Since signing from Lazio’s bitter rivals Roma in 2012, Borini has actually only scored a quite pathetic two Premier League goals for Liverpool, confirming the fact that he sadly doesn’t have the ability to start up top for us, although his attitude has always been first-class.
The report claims that an imminent bid from Lazio will be accepted by Liverpool, with the club desperate to offload him after Borini (annoyingly) rejected a £14m permanent switch to Sunderland last summer.
We can’t see us getting anywhere near that sum this time around after the forward’s abject 2014/15 campaign, but with Danny Ings and Divock Origi already arriving as ‘backup’ forwards – there really is no room for the Italian in our squad.
He’s not travelled to Thailand with the rest of the first-team squad so as to smooth any potential contract negotiations with a new club, and we hope it gets sorted out quickly so we can focus on potential new targets.
