Liverpool accept Sunderland bid for Fabio Borini

Published 5 Comments

Liverpool have accepted an offer worth a total of £10million from Sunderland for Italian forward Fabio Borini, according to Sky Sports sources.

The striker has been out of favour at Anfield this summer, having failed to impress when given opportunities by Brendan Rodgers throughout last season.

Bid accepted

It now looks as though he will leave the club despite fears that potential suitors wouldn’t be forthcoming with bids before the transfer deadline, with Sunderland apparently having stumped up the necessary cash.

The 24-year-old is no stranger to Wearside having spent a loan spell there before, and it would appear that the Black Cats’ early season struggles have left them under the impression they need to bolster their frontline.

In Borini they’ll be getting an experienced striker who still has potential to be unlocked, even if he’s never really hit the heights initially expected of him in England thus far.

Speculation over

For Liverpool fans the deal will mark the end of a weeks of wondering whether or not Borini would still be on Rodgers’ books until at least Christmas.

Since the Italian has two years on his Anfield contract left £10m seems about a fair amount, and after the arrivals of Danny Ings and Christian Benteke it’s not as though the Reds are short of attacking options themselves.

Liverpool fans, are you happy to see Borini leaving? Should he be given more of a chance? Let us know in the comments box below.
