Inter chasing misfit forward Fabio Borini.
Serie A giants Inter Milan are interested in signing unwanted Liverpool striker Fabio Borini, report the Mirror, as manager Walter Mazzarri looks to continue the job of rebuilding a lopsided squad at the San Siro that has struggled to put in the performances at the start of the Serie A season.

Despite featuring in the last couple of Liverpool games as Brendan Rodgers’ side continue to be without star forward Daniel Sturridge, Borini is not thought to be in his manager’s long term plans and would’ve been sold to Sunderland this summer if the Italian had been able to agree terms with the Black Cats, where he spent a moderately successful spell on loan last season.
Sunderland had agreed a fee of £14 million for the former Chelsea and AS Roma striker, however, and as they look to restructure their finances Inter Milan are unlikely to be able to offer such an amount for Borini even if they sold star young striker Mauro Icardi in January.
Whether Liverpool are keen enough to get Borini off the wage bill to come to an agreement over a smaller fee with Inter remains to be seen, however, whilst manager Mazzarri is also in danger of being sacked if the club’s results do not improve quickly.
