AS Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini has revealed that Liverpool are keen to sign Fabio Borini.

The 21-year old Italian striker joined Roma from Parma in August last year, initially on loan, but could already be on his way out at the Stadio Olimpico.

"There is a real interest shown by Liverpool for Borini," said Sabatini.

"We are evaluating the situation with (Roma general manager) Franco (Baldini)."

Borini, who came through Bologna's youth academy, joined Chelsea in 2007 before moving on to the senior list in 2009 and had a loan spell with Swansea City in 2011.
