Borini has not featured under Brendan Rodgers so far this season and the acquisition of Victor Moses has seen him slip further out of the picture at Anfield.

The 22-year-old former Chelsea man scored just two goals in 20 appearances last season following his £10.5m move from Roma in July 2012 - when he became one of Rodgers first signings.
