Liverpool’s Fabio Borini is set to continue stalling over a proposed move to Sunderland as the striker awaits a bid from Inter Milan, reports Inside Futbol. The Red has an offer on the table from Sunderland, but he is prepared to keep the Black Cats waiting as he assesses his options.
Gus Poyet has had a £14 million offer accepted by Liverpool, and the Stadium of Light club are now working on personal terms with Borini. However, negotiations have been ongoing for weeks now, as the tension rises at Sunderland who are in need of a new striker before the transfer window closes. It had been hoped that Borini would arrive quickly, given the season-long loan spell that he had enjoyed at the club last season, but it was not to be.
Inside Futbol suggests that the player is most interested in rumours that Inter Milan are considering signing him. Should the San Siro club firm up their interest into a substantial offer, then Borini is expected to quickly favour a move back to his homeland.
Liverpool had originally shipped him out of Italy, having paid £10 million when they signed him from Roma in 2010. Since then, however, the forward has struggled to make a mark at Anfield, and has been deemed surplus to Brendan Rodgers’ requirements, despite the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona.
