Monday’s biggest stories for the Reds…
Fabio Borini again targeted by Sunderland
Sunderland have retained their interest in former loanee Fabio Borini, and will make a renewed bid for the Liverpool striker in the January transfer window – according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The Italian enjoyed a fruitful loan spell in the North East last term, scoring 10 goals to help keep the Black Cats in the Premier League. Borini returned to Liverpool this season, but has found first-team opportunities hard to come by at Anfield.
And Poyet has admitted he would like to work with the striker once again, commenting: “I would love to. It is difficult to explain [why he never signed]. It was a long summer and the things everyone knows, we agreed a price and we flew to America [for Liverpool’s pre-season tour] and he didn’t come.”
