Borini facing being frozen out of Liverpool

Having rejected moves away from the club during the transfer window, Fabio Borini now faces being frozen out of Anfield with his playing time expected to be next to nothing, the Telegraph is reporting.

Liverpool chiefs are reportedly baffled at the stance the Italian striker has taken with the club after Brendan Rodgers told the 23-year-old he is unlikely to be involved.

Sunderland had a £14m bid accepted after the player spent last season on loan with the Black Cats but spurned their advances – before Queens Park Rangers made a £10m move on deadline day only for Borini’s demands to scupper any deal.

The Italian reportedly demanded £95,000 a week at Loftus Road, alongside a severance package at Liverpool and an exit clause stating he could leave QPR for less than the £10m they would be paying for him – the club offered him significant money but rejected any clause.

Liverpool sold Luis Suarez in the summer but brought in Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli who will all be ahead of Borini in the pecking order, while the likes of Raheem Sterling and Lazar Markovic can also operate in a number of forward positions.

Rodgers signed the striker as his first player when he took over at the club back in 2012 after coaching him at Chelsea and Swansea, paying Roma £10.5m for his services.

It is thought that Borini would refer to move to a club of similar stature to Roma, Chelsea and Liverpool if he is to leave – being wary of joining a relegation threatened club on a permanent basis.
