Poyet admits negotiations have dragged on far too long.
He told the Evening Chronicle: â€œWeâ€™ve got specific targets and itâ€™s taking a little bit too long. [Regarding Borini] I think we need to be honest.
â€œThe more time that goes past, it looks to me, we have less chance.
â€œSome people think the opposite. The more players Liverpool sign, then there is more chance.
â€œLetâ€™s see who is right and wrong.
â€œWe have time for one or two specific players, but the rest, we donâ€™t have time."
