According to Sun, Liverpool’s want-away striker Fabio Borini is set to join West Ham United this summer after it appears that both the clubs have agreed to a £8 million asking fee for the player.
Having joined Anfield in the summer of 2012, it has not been easy for the Italian to find a regular starting place in the team.
Borini enjoyed a successful loan spell with Sunderland during the 2013-14 season but Brendan Rodgers denied him the opportunity to join Black Cats last summer.
Having spent yet another season on the fringes, Borini cannot take another season full of bench-time and with Euro 2016 on the horizon, Borini needs to get more playing time to have any chances of making in to Iyaly’s national squad.
West Ham’s resurgence could ignite Borini’s career as well:
West Ham are one club to look forward to in the upcoming Premier League season. Having rough in Slaven Bilic as their new manager, the Hammers are well on their way to resurgence.
West Ham recently signed Dimitri Payet from Marseille for £10.7million and it is just the start towards bringing several key players next season.
Andy Carroll’s injury troubled season has forced the hammers to offer him pay-as-you-play contract offer. That being said, West Ham need new strikers and they are closely following Borini’s proposed £8 million signing from Liverpool.
Brendan Rodgers has signed Roberto Firmino and Danny Ings and rightfully he needs to ship Mario Balotelli and Fabio Borini from his squad to establish a competitive strike force at Anfiled.
