The Italian was Rodgers’ first signing after succeeding Kenny Dalglish in the summer of 2012, but has failed to nail down a first team spot at Anfield.

Borini scored just one league goal in his debut season at the club and a result was shipped out on-loan to Sunderland the following year, where he found the net seven times in 32 league appearances.

He returned to the Reds at the start of the season and despite several injuries to Daniel Sturridge and the loss of form to Mario Balotelli, Borini was never given a sustained run in the team and looks set for a departure when the transfer window opens.

Mail Sport claim Serie A outfit Lazio are ready to rescue the 24-year-old from his miserable spell in England and feel the promise of Champions League football next season will be enough to entice him.
