Liverpool striker Fabio Borini might not be considered the main man on Merseyside but he still has suitors aplenty around Europe, according to The Sun.

The newspaper claims that as many as eight clubs are set to fight for the Italian striker’s signature, with his current deal having only 12 months left to run. Borini has only made 16 appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ side this campaign, starting just five, and has only notched one goal.

Borini failings

At a club where striking prowess is usually measured by the stats recorded by the likes of Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez that’s hardly good enough, and as a result it’s unlikely he’ll be offered a new Anfield deal.

The forward turned down the chance to move permanently to Sunderland last summer after spending the season on loan at the Stadium of Light, but ultimately looks to have been unsuccessful in his attempts to win Brendan Rodgers' favour.

Even with both Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert under-performing the 24-year-old has struggled to make an impression, and a move to pastures new could be what’s needed to kick-start his career. According to The Sun an octuplet of clubs dotted around Europe will be willing to take him on, though no specific details are forthcoming.

Return to Italy?

It’s most probable that a return to his native Italy could be on the cards, where the likes of Inter Milan, AS Roma and Fiorentina are looking to try and knock Juventus off of top spot.

Borini may well find it easier to have an impact in Serie A than the Premier League, and if his ambition is to make a big enough impact to be noticed by Italy head coach Antonio Conte he’d do well to seriously consider a move back to more familiar shores.
