Fabio Borini’s agent has confirmed that Liverpool were chasing the Parma striker, but Borini eventually decided to head to Italy instead of Merseyside.

“Parma did well to believe in him when his contract at Chelsea ran out,” Marco De Marchi said.

“Then Roma invested heavily on him which confirmed that the player has some extraordinary ability, as you can see from his performances for the Italian Under-21 side.


“The player was liked by a lot of other clubs, sides such as Liverpool and Hamburg came after him too.”

Liverpool have spent over £60 million in the summer transfer window, bringing seven players on board as the side aims to challenge for trophies once more.

Borini is now at Roma on loan, with the deal costing the Serie A side €1.7 million, with an option to buy for €7 million, according to

The 20-year-old spent last the last year on loan at Swansea from Chelsea, and opted for an Italian return rather than Liverpool.
