• Striker would be Brendan Rodgers' first purchase as manager
• Borini scored nine goals in 24 Serie A games last season
Liverpool have agreed a fee with Roma for Fabio Borini and the striker has arrived on Merseyside to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms.
The 21-year-old worked with the Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers, first at Chelsea and when he went on loan to Swansea in the 2010-11 season.
Borini has arrived at the club's Melwood training ground to have his medical and the deal should be completed, barring any hitches, in the next couple of days.
Borini's fee has not been disclosed, although media reports estimate it is between £10m and 12m. He would be Rodgers' first signing since he took over from Kenny Dalglish.
Roma bought Borini outright last month after paying Parma £3.95m for the remaining 50% of the player's rights.
Borini, who was a member of Italy's Euro 2012 squad, scored nine goals in 24 Serie A appearances for Roma last season.
He scored six goals in nine Championship matches for Swansea in their promotion-winning campaign after joining in March 2011 and won the penalty in the Wembley play-off final which secured a 4-2 lead and victory over Reading.
With his contract expiring at Stamford Bridge he signed for the Italian side Parma, with Chelsea receiving a small sum in compensation, but was immediately loaned out to Roma.
He scored nine times in 24 matches and, after Roma bought half of his rights in January, the Serie A club secured full ownership, at a total cost of around £6m, last month.
Borini's form earned him a place in Italy's Euro 2012 squad but he remained on the bench throughout his country's run to the final, where they were beaten by Spain. Read More
