Liverpool have agreed to sell Italian striker Fabio Borini to Sunderland for £14 million - but the deal will only go through if the 23-year-old can agree personal terms with the club he spent the 2013/14 campaign on loan.

This is according to the Telegraph, who claim that a fee has been agreed between the two Premier League clubs. Borini scored seven Premier League goals for the Black Cats and, according to Scott Wilson from the Northern Echo, is keen to leave Anfield for the Stadium of Light this summer.

Liverpool rebuild continues

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will have another £14 million to spend on top of the £75 million received for the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona.

Twenty million pounds has been spent on acquiring the signature of highly-rated Serbia international Lazar Markovic from Benfica - and several more attack-minded players are expected to arrive over the coming weeks, including Queens Park Rangers’ striker Loic Remy.

Liverpool make profit on Borini

That Borini played just a handful of matches for Liverpool, means the Reds have done exceptionally well to make a profit on the player, who arrived from AS Roma in 2012.

Borini cost Liverpool a reported £10.5 million, but his impressive performances on loan at Sunderland have convinced the north-east outfit to spend big on acquiring his services on a permanent basis.
