Liverpool look to offload Borini
Liverpool could seek to sell striker Fabio Borini as they attempt to raise funds to finance their own summer spending, according to The Daily Star.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is currently seeking the signatures of Southampton duo Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren, having already moved to bring Rickie Lambert to Anfield from the south coast club.
The addition of these attacking players to a squad already containing the likes of World Cup stars Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge could leave very little opportunity for Borini, who has endured a frustrating career with the Reds so far.
The 23-year-old Italian initially signed for the Merseyside club from Roma in 2012 for a fee of around £10.5 million. But a succession of injuries curtailed his first season with Liverpool, and to date he has only made 13 Premier League appearances, scoring just once.
He spent the 2013/14 season on loan at Sunderland, where he had a much better time of things, scoring 10 goals in 40 appearances in all competitions, helping the Black Cats to the Capital One Cup final and a dramatic Premier League survival.
Rodgers is rumoured to have considered offering Borini to Southampton in a part exchange deal for his transfer targets, and may now seek to sell the striker to the highest bidder.
