Reports tonight suggesting that terms & fee have been agreed.
Rodgers has already worked with Borini at Chelsea’s academy.
Rodgers has already said earlier this week: ”We hope to complete a deal this week which will be a real exciting one for the club,”
“He will be terrific, I’m sure. And the supporters will absolutely love him”.
Borini started his career at Bologna, before moving to Chelsea in 2007. In 2011, he joined Swansea City on loan from Chelsea, when they were competing in the Championship. He scored 6 goals in 9 games for them. He went to Parma, but failed to make an impact. On 31 August 2011, Borini signed for Italian club Roma on loan for €1.25m, with an option to buy for €7m. Borini signed a 1+4 year contract. Whilst on loan he scored 9 goals in 24 games.
Borini has played for Italy once, and played for Italy U21 14 times scoring 3 goals.
He’s a very hot prospect at the age of 21.
