Liverpool have agreed a fee with
AS Roma for the transfer of striker Fabio Borini, according to
British and Italian media reports, with the 21-year-old moving
to Anfield in an 11 million-pound deal.
Liverpool are discussing personal terms with the young Italy
international who is set to have a medical and complete the move
during the weekend.
In that case, Borini would become new manager Brendan
Rodgers' first signing at Liverpool after previously working
with him at both Chelsea and Swansea City.
Borini joined Parma after his Chelsea contract expired last
summer but was loaned out to Roma where he scored 10 goals in 26
games in all competitions, earning a place in Italy's Euro 2012
Roma bought half of his rights back in January when they
entered into a co-ownership agreement with Parma. Last month
they bought the other 50 percent taking their overall spending
on him to around seven million pounds.
Rodgers moved for Borini after Dirk Kuyt left for Fenerbahce
and with Luis Suarez involved in the Olympic Games with Uruguay.
