Sunderland In Talks to Sign Liverpool Striker Fabio Borini

Stadium of Light side keen on Anfield forward.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Sunderland are reportedly looking to sign Liverpool striker Fabio Borini as Paolo Di Canio looks to improve his Black Cats attacking options according to Sports Direct News.

The 22 year old Italian international could be brought in to replace Stephane Sessegnon, who has been linked with a Stadium of Light exit, and one wonders if Brendan Rodgers would fight to keep hold of the former Roma man given his fairly average form for the Anfield side.

Borini has managed just one goal in 13 Premier League appearances since his £10.5m move to Merseyside last July and with the arrival of Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas, coupled with the great form Daniel Sturridge has displayed of late and the fact that Luis Suarez appears to be staying put it may well prove likely that an offer for the misfiring striker could be accepted.

Di Canio has seen his side score just two goals in their opening three matches and the BBC believe that the Sunderland manager may elect to look to bring in Borini on a loan deal.

Sunderland have purchased a number of players this summer, including striker Jozy Altidore, but may well still feel the need to further strengthen their attack before the transfer window closes.
