Liverpool have made an enquiry over the availability of Italian striker Fabio Borini, according to the Mirror.

New Reds boss Brendan Rodgers worked with Borini in the youth team at Chelsea and also signed him on loan from the Blues while at Swansea, where he went on to score 6 goals in 12 appearances.

Now the Mirror claim Rodgers is keen to link up with the 21-year-old again at Anfield and will look to make Borini his second summer signing along with Hoffenheim midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Borini left Chelsea last summer after failing to agree terms on a new contract and eventually signed for Italian outfit Parma, before being immediately loaned out to Roma, who also bought a stake in the player. He went on to enjoy an excellent first season in Serie A, scoring 10 goals in 26 games and was a surprise selection in the Italian Euro 2012 squad this summer.

Rodgers is understood to have been watching the players development closely and has now made firm enquiries about his availability this summer.

The Mirror claim that both joint-owners Parma and Roma are happy to cash in on the player to turn a quick profit, and although a formal offer has not yet been made, talks have begun over a potential £10m deal.
