Reds complete Borini signing
Roma striker Fabio Borini has become Brendan Rodgers' first signing as Reds boss, after finalising a long-term deal at Anfield.
The 21-year-old Italy international passed a medical and agreed personal terms at the club's Melwood training ground on Friday. Borini moves to Anfield for a fee Press Association Sport understands is in the region of £7.9million.
Borini will be reunited with Rodgers, with whom he worked in the Chelsea youth set up, for a second time having spent a short spell on loan at Swansea in the 2010/11 season.
The young forward, who scored six goals in nine matches for the Swans, is pleased to be back in the country and hopes he can help fire the club back into the Champions League.
"I felt really good because I wanted to come back to England one day. I knew sooner or later I would be back," he said. "Being back with Liverpool is even better because I can show the people what I can do - we've got the Europa League and lots of things to play for.
"I hope to achieve the maximum I can, by scoring goals, getting into the Champions League and all of the things the club also wants - and all the other players. It's a top club that has won a lot of trophies in the past - and will do so in the future we hope as well."
