Brendan Rogers has made his first purchase as Liverpool manager bringing in Fabio Borini for £8 million pounds.
The 21-year-old Italian will be no stranger to Rogers or English football as he played for Rogers on a loan spell at Swansea during the 2010/11 season. Borini played 9 times during Swansea’s promotion campaign and contributed an impressive 6 goals to the Swans ascent into the Premier League.
It is also worth noting that Borini won the second Penalty for Swansea to help put them 4-2 up in the playoff final against Reading at Wembley in 2011.
Last season Liverpool made a lot of chances but their forwards frustrated Liverpool and fantasy premier league managers alike. Already Kuyt has been offloaded to Fenerbahce with rumours that Bellamy and Carroll are also about to follow suit. If Carroll does go on loan and Bellamy does leave for either Cardiff or QPR it makes Borini an attractive fantasy option.
With Brendan Rogers at the helm you can be sure that the Liverpool forwards will get service and it is expected that Borini will be a cheaper alternative to Luis Suarez.
