Liverpool FC have accepted a bid for 24-year-old striker Fabio Borini from Italian club S.S Lazio.

The offer has been accepted a couple weeks after the outcast striker was omitted from the Reds squad for their preseason tour of Thailand.

The bid is believed to be worth in the region of £10 million, £4 million less than the bid which Sunderland reportedly made less than 12 months ago.

Fabio Borini has been enticed by the lure of Champions League football and featuring regularly in the starting line, something that constantly eluded him during his time a Liverpool.

However, it seems that Borini will have to take a wage cut to £35,000 a week if he wishes to move to Lazio.

On top of this disgruntled duo, Enrique and Balotelli, both of whom were omitted from the preseason tour of Thailand, also seem be on the move.

Newcastle United have renewed their interest in Enrique, having previously targeted him in 2011, and are preparing to table a £4 million bid for the 29-year-old left back, instead of waiting for his contract to end at the end of the season.

Flop Mario Balotelli also seems to have been shown the door by Liverpool as they have reportedly received inquiries from both Sampdoria and Turkish giants Trabzonspor, but Massimo Ferrero, Sampdoria's President has declared an interest in the Italian striker .

The Reds are reportedly holding out for a bid of around £8-9 million, half of the price the Reds paid last summer having dropped their valuation from £12 million.
