Roma forward Fabio Borini is expected to become Brendan Rodgers’ first signing as Liverpool manager.
The 21-year-old Italy international worked with Rodgers at the Chelsea academy and on loan at Swansea.
Talks between the parties are ongoing and although the deal has yet to be agreed, the potential fee is likely to be in the region of £8m.
On Monday Rodgers had stated that he was close to making an “exciting” signing.
“We hope to complete a deal this week which will be a real exciting one for the club,” he said.
Its no secret that Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is trying to get Fabio Borini at Anfield. And latest sources tells us the move is about to be completed. Wikipedia can already confirm that Borini is already a Liverpool player. But we would advise the supporters to get a official announcement, before you get all excited. Because Spurs are becoming notorious in hijacking player deals.
