Liverpool expressed interest in Borini

Borini arrived at Parma in the summer but the former Chelsea and Swansea man was sent out on loan.

“Parma did well to believe in him when his contract at Chelsea ran out,” said Borini’s agent Marco De Marchi

“Then Roma invested heavily on him which confirmed that the player has some extraordinary ability, as you can see from his performances for the Italian Under-21 side.

“The player was liked by a lot of other clubs, sides such as Liverpool and Hamburg came after him too.”
