Monk is no doubt well aware just how crucial a player Bony was to his side’s attack and will be looking to swiftly sign a viable replacement and is now tracking Italian international Borini.

The 23 year old is a bit-part player at Anfield and despite the poor form shown by Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert the former AS Roma man has been handed just two Premier League starts this season.

Borini is thought to have turned down the chance of a move to Sunderland last summer but may now be more amenable to a Liverpool exit following his failed attempts to persuade Brendan Rodgers of his worth.

Liverpool paid £10.5m for Borini in July 2012 but may well consider a fee lower than that sum though any January sale may depend on Rodgers’ ability to bring in a fresh option himself.

Should Rodgers elect to cut short Divock Origi’s season long loan stint at Lille then that may well result in Borini being made available to prospective suitors.
