It’s been one of the longest running transfer saga’s of the summer here in the Football Transfer Tavern and it seems that even Gus Poyet is on the verge of giving up on signing Fabio Borini from Liverpool, according to The Express.
The Italian forward spent last season on loan at the Stadium of Light, scoring 10 goals in all competitions as the Black Cats achieved a remarkable escape from relegation.
Borini was awarded with the club’s young player of the season and impressed Poyet enough to warrant a £14 million bid for his services on a permanent deal.
That offer was accepted by Liverpool, but Borini has stalled for almost three weeks now leaving Poyet to look at alternatives.
Liverpool fans. Does Fabio Borini deserve a chance to prove himself this season? Let us know your thoughts below.
