Inter Milan plot £10m January bid for Fabio Borini

Inter Milan are looking to capitalise on the recent transfer saga involving Fabio Borini, with speculation claiming that the Serie A side are lining up a £10 million swoop for the Liverpool striker in January.

Italian international Borini came desperately close to leaving Anfield this summer, with both Sunderland and Queens Park Rangers having agreed fees with the Reds for his services.

Both moves ultimately broke down, however, with the player's hefty wage demands seemingly foiling a surprise deadline day switch to Loftus Road. 

Inter interest

And with Borini obviously not an immediate part of Brendan Rodgers' plans at Liverpool, reports in Italy cited by The Daily Express suggest that Inter will launch an offer for the player in the new year, one which they claim is likely to be accepted by the Premier League title contenders as they look to move him on to pastures new.

Despite his hard work and enthusiastic nature, Borini - who was Rodgers' first signing after the former Watford, Reading and Swansea boss succeeded Kenny Dalglish on Merseyside - has struggled to adapt since moving to Liverpool from Roma back in 2012.

Having seen his first campaign at the famous club dogged by injury woe, the former Chelsea trainee massively improved his flagging reputation in 2013/14 during a season-long loan spell under Gus Poyet at the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland disappointment

So successful was that stint in the North East, that many Sunderland supporters could have been forgiven for assuming that a permanent transfer to the club was a foregone conclusion.

However, while the Mackems did manage to negotiate an acceptable price, such a move never came to pass with Borini possibly having second thoughts about potentially becoming embroiled in another fight against relegation to the Championship.

The 23-year-old will surely view the illustrious San Siro as a more attractive destination, despite the fact that Inter finished outside the Champions League qualification places under Walter Mazzarri last year. 

Whether QPR will challenge Inter for his signature in four months time having come so close to reaching an agreement on Monday remains to be seen, with Harry Redknapp favourite Jermain Defoe seemingly still very high on Rangers' agenda following the dismissal of Toronto manager Ryan Nelsen last week.
