Roma formerly part-owned him with Serie A rivals Parma but an offer of 4.9 million euros (£3.95million) in a sealed envelope bid proved enough to ensure that Borini would stay at the Stadio Olimpico.

There had been media speculation in Italy and England that the ex-Swansea City player could link up again with former coach Brendan Rodgers, who is now in charge at Liverpool.

So does this move from the Stadio Olimpico side spell the end of Liverpool’s reported advances? Well most probably, although some may speculate that Roma may have looked to secure the full rights to the Italian international in order to fully cash in on the former Chelsea man.

Anfield boss Rodgers had been linked with a move to sign a player he knew well from his time as Chelsea’s youth team coach and who loaned the player back when he was Swansea City boss.

Liverpool could well do with alternative attacking options given that the sum total of the Merseyside club’s strike-force is represented by Luis Suarez, Andy Carroll and veteran Craig Bellamy, hence the club only manaing 47 goals in the Premier League last term.
