Liverpool will hold out for an improved offer for flop striker Fabio Borini, having met with Fiorentina officials last night concerning a transfer.

Yesterday it was stated that La Viola are attempting to negotiate with their Merseyside counterparts concerning a deal for Borini, but talkSPORT today provides an update that implies an agreement is still some way off.

The report in question details how Liverpool want £8million for the ex-Chelsea man, with Fiorentina having thus far put £5.5m on the table as their opening gambit.

That’s not to say the Reds are keen to keep Borini, as Brendan Rodgers does want him offloaded before the new campaign kicks off this weekend.

Liverpool’s stance is presumably more to do with the fact that they believe they can get £8m for the forward, and with Fiorentina desperate for a deal to be done in time for the start of the new Serie A season, the balls currently sitting in an Anfield court.

Negotiations ongoing

New talks regarding the striker’s future have been pencilled for this weekend, though that date might be brought forward if either of the parties involved are prepared to change their demands.

Whilst Fiorentina might do that it’s essentially unthinkable that Liverpool would consider it. They’re under no immediate pressure to remove Borini from the squad, and even if he stays they can either wait for other suitors or simply keep him on their books in a reserve capacity.

Deal to be done soon?

The 24-year-old has two years left on his current Reds deal, so there’s no risk regarding him leaving on a free anytime soon.

It can be guaranteed that both sides want negotiations to be wrapped up sooner rather than later if possible, however.
