Fabio Borini exit: Three Italian clubs tracking Liverpool striker
Fabio Borini could finally be on his way out of Liverpool, with Fiorentina, Sampdoria, and Inter Milan all thought to be interested in securing the player’s signature.
According to reports in Italy, Borini’s relationship with Brendan Rodgers has allegedly hit an all time low, with the pair barely even on speaking terms. However, Rodgers did recently praise the forward‘s efforts in training.
Borini has made just five appearances so far this season, despite the poor form of his fellow forwards Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert, and that has supposedly prompted the striker to consider his options in January.
The Liverpool forward may have to take a substantial pay cut if he is to make the switch to Serie A, a factor that scuppered potential moves to Sunderland and Queens Park Rangers during the summer window.
Borini’s agent has played down a move back to his native country, but his chances of game time are unlikely to improve once Daniel Sturridge returns from injury, so a January move could certainly be on the cards.
The 23-year-old began his career with Chelsea, enjoying a successful loan spell with Brendan Rodgers’ Swansea in 2011. He continued to impress during his time with Roma, with his form convincing Rodgers to make him his first Liverpool signing in 2012.
