Sunderland target Fabio Borini could be on his way to the San Siro with reports in Italy suggesting that AC Milan have expressed an interest in the Liverpool striker, report the Sunderland Echo.
The Italian giants are looking to replace the now departed Mario Balotelli who made the switch to Liverpool this week. The arrival of Balotelli has pushed Borini even further down the pecking order at Anfield and despite initially rejecting the chance to move to Sunderland the Italian could well be tempted by a switch back to his home country.
The Black Cats had a £14m bid for Borini accepted by Liverpool earlier in the summer but the forward was apparently keen to stay and fight for his place at Anfield.
Borini enjoyed a successful 2013/14 season at the Stadium of Light as Sunderland reached the league cup final, winning the club’s Young Player of the Year award and scoring ten goals in all competitions.
Milan are also reportedly interested in a loan deal for Chelsea striker Fernando Torres.
Four of Borini’s seven Premier League goals came during the final five games last season.
