Liverpool striker Fabio Borini has fallen out of favour at Anfield and it seems the Italian is on his way out of the Merseyside club.
According to the Daily Star, the Liverpool flop is expected to be signed by Sunderland before the end of the transfer window.
The Reds are hoping to sell the Italian international for £8m, which would be less than the £10.5m that they paid Roma in 2012.
After struggling at Liverpool in his first season at Anfield, Borini found his groove in a loan season at Sunderland.
He scored 10 goals in the 2013-14 season, but managed to find the back of the net just once last season upon his return to the Reds.
He made only 18 appearances while being unable to fight his way onto the first team, and he has fallen down the pecking order under Brendan Rodgers.
The arrivals of Christian Benteke and Danny Ings look to have ultimately sealed Borini’s fate.
It appears that he will be headed to Sunderland after two disappointing seasons with Liverpool.
Interestingly enough, Sunderland attempted to sign Borini to a permanent deal worth £14m last summer, but the striker declined the move.
