Parma Sporting Director Pietro Leonardi has revealed that a deal is almost completed for Chelsea wonderkid Fabio Borini, with the Italian keen to make a move back to his home land next season.
Borini has been on loan at Swansea City for the last three months, and has been a star throughout his nine appearances, contributing six goals to the npower Championship side as they secured promotion to the Barclays Premier League.
But the Chelsea starlet has been clear in his intentions to move to Italy, and Leonardi says a deal is very close to being signed.
"We are very close to completing the transfer of Borini,” the Sporting Director said.
"It is only a matter of details before we wrap up the deal."
Borini can leave Chelsea on a free transfer in the summer, and with Chelsea not needing any more strikers on their books, Roman Abramovich is reportedly very happy to let the 20-year-old head to his desired club.
