Liverpool have struck terms with AS Roma for striker Fabio Borini. The Sun says Borini will be Brendan Rodgers' first signing after Liverpool agreed a £12million fee with Roma last night.

The Italian striker, 21, is set to complete a move to Anfield in the next 48 hours as the Kop boss begins the latest Red revolution.

The deal delivers a big blow to Andy Carroll's dreams of making it at Liverpool with the Geordie likely to face another campaign as a bit-part player.
