Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is plotting a summer move for young Italian striker Fabio Borini as he looks to beef up his Anfield attacking options.
The former Chelsea youth team player played under Rodgers at Stamford Bridge and also enjoyed a successful loan spell at Swansea City two seasons ago and now the Liverpool manager will look to lure the youngster back to the Premier League as Borini considers his future in Serie A.
Fabio Borini moved from West London to Parma in July 2011 on a five year deal but was then immediately loaned out to Roma where the 21 year old enjoyed a successful season last term, netting nine goals for the Stadio Olimpico side leading to his inclusion in Cesare Prandelli’s Euro 2012 squad.
It is as yet unknown whether Roma will seek to make their temporary move for Borini a permanent one and Rodgers is keen to enter talks with the speedy striker ahead of a possible move to bring him to Anfield.
Brendan Rodgers is well aware of Liverpool’s shortcomings up front and will be looking to bring in alternatives after a season that saw the club manage just 47 goals in Premier League action last term.
Luis Suarez was effectively the only efficient attacking weapon during the campaign that saw Kenny Dalglish axed and though Andy Carroll showed signs of improvement there are still no other recognised back-up options other than veteran Craig Bellamy who is now more commonly used in a wide role.
Given that the manager who loaned Borini at Roma, Luis Enrique, has since been sacked it could well leave the young striker looking around for alternative options and a move to Liverpool would surely be of interest.
