Bologna to go back for Liverpool’s Borini

Italian side Bologna are ready to go back in for Liverpool’s Fabio Borini after they failed with a January move for the striker, the Daily Express has reported.

Borini has already rejected two moves away from Liverpool as both Sunderland, where he spent last season on loan, and Queens Park Rangers failed with summer and January bids respectively.

The Italian has chosen to remain at Liverpool and fight for a place in the starting XI – although he has scored just one goal in 16 appearances so far.

The return to fitness of Daniel Sturridge will restrict the player’s game time even further with Borini already behind Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli in the pecking order.

Bologna technical director Pantaleo Corvino confirmed the club had spoken to the 23-year-old last month but agreed to discuss a potential move again in the future with the player opting for another Anfield stay.

The attacker has publically stated that he doesn’t regret staying at the club either in the summer or winter transfer windows and will continue to fight for his place.

An acknowledgement from Borini saw him accept his game time would be limited and did reveal that he had actually played more than expected.

However Bologna will hope to persuade the striker that a return to Italy is the best thing for his career.
