Swansea City are weighing up a move for young Liverpool striker Fabio Borini, FootballDirectNews.com understands.
The 22-year-old Italian is currently on loan for the season at Sunderland, who are also believed to be keen on keeping the player permanently, though his future remains somewhat up in the air.
Borini is highly rated by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, who had him on loan during his time as manager of the Swans in 2011, though his old club could now look to bring him back. With current strikers Michu and Wilfried Bony misfiring for the Welsh club this season, Borini has been identified as a possible option to improve their attack next season. We’re not sure if Liverpool plan to keep him, but Borini is a player the club are keen on, a Swansea insider revealed. “He’s done well at Sunderland and I think a lot of clubs are showing interest now, so there’s a chance he will be available, but it won’t be easy.

“The forward, who has also played for Chelsea and Roma, faces plenty of competition for places at Anfield due to the fine form of players such as Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.
