Liverpool flop Fabio Borini appears to be edging closer to a move away from Anfield, with reports suggesting Sunderland have made a bid for the Italian striker.
Borini has struggled to make an impact at the Merseyside club since joining in 2012, scoring just two goals in 25 Premier League appearances for the Reds.
The 24-year-old showed plenty of promise during his loan stint with Sunderland during the 2013-14 season, and The Daily Mail reports the Black Cats have made a bid to bring the former Chelsea man back to the Stadium of Light.
According to the report, Sunderland have offered £8m plus a further £2m in bonus payments which is claimed to have been accepted by Liverpool.
Inter Milan have also shown interest in Borini and could still make a bid on Monday before the Serie A transfer window closes at midnight.
Borini scored seven goals in 32 Premier League appearances for Sunderland during his loan stint and played a pivotal role in helping the club maintain its top flight status.
