Liverpool have reportedly reached an agreement for the sale of Fabio Borini to Lazio this summer, with Italian source Leggo claiming a fee has been agreed between the two clubs.

The Reds have not been able to find a place in their first-team for Borini, who has been unconvincing at Anfield since arriving from AS Roma a couple of years ago, having previously impressed manager Brendan Rodgers during a spell together at Swansea City.

Still, making the step up at Anfield has proven difficult for the Italian forward, who now looks ready to make the move back to Rome with their inner-city rivals Lazio for next season.

Leggo claims the deal could be an initial loan move, though a deal in principle has also been agreed for the player to move to the Stadio Olimpico on a permanent basis.

Borini is not the only Liverpool attacker to struggle last season, with Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert’s poor form also a major factor behind the Merseyside giants dropping out of the Premier League top four, having failed to adequately replace Luis Suarez after his move to Barcelona.

The Uruguay international had scored 31 foals for the club the previous season, forming a fine partnership with England striker Daniel Sturridge, whose absence through injury in 2014/15 also proved to be a big blow for the team.

With Liverpool active in the market so far this summer, it is little surprise to see that there is no longer room for Borini as he appears to near the switch to Lazio.
