The agent of Chelsea striker Fabio Borini admits Liverpool and Hamburg tried to sign him.

Borini joined AS Roma last week, via Parma, after impressing at Swansea City last season on-loan from the Blues.

Marco de Marchi revealed: "Roma spent a lot of money to take him on-loan because they believe he is an extraordinary talent.

"The player was very hungry, he was also tried for by Liverpool and Hamburg."
