Championship club leading three-way race to bring former Liverpool forward back to UK

Fabio Borini is training alone in Merseyside as he waits for an English club to make an offer for his services.

Borini is a free agent after leaving Hellas Verona at the end of last season. He received several offers over the summer, but has been holding out for a return to English football.

The forward previously played for Chelsea, Liverpool and Sunderland on British shores. But it is another of his former clubs, Swansea, where he could return.

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, Swansea are one of three competitors for Borini’s signature. Watford and Burnley are also weighing up a potential offer.

During his last spell at Swansea, when he was on loan from Chelsea, Borini scored six goals in nine Championship games. Nine years on, he could now return to Wales.

Gazzetta claim that Swansea are “especially” keen for a deal to take Borini back. However, they are yet to make a concrete offer.

Nonetheless, the 29-year-old is still hopeful of receiving a proposal from at least one club in English football.

Borini confirms desire to return to England

The former AC Milan attacker has opened up to Gazzetta about why he wants to return to the UK.

He told the Italian newspaper: “I had the proposals in Italy, also concrete and important, but I gave myself the necessary time to have the opportunity to return to England, perhaps even with minor offers economically, my idea was to return to the United Kingdom.

“It is the experience that formed me from an early age, the lifestyle, the football and work mentality that was impressed on me. As for example in American films they try to be the perfect soldier, they instil the mentality of the invincible.

“I am not saying that I feel invincible, but it is the mentality that I have in my head and I feel the need to relive.”
