Sabatini: Liverpool want Borini

Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini has confirmed that Liverpool are looking to sign Italy striker Fabio Borini.

Borini, 21, worked under current Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers at both Swansea and Chelsea, before moving to Italy with Roma last summer.

Roma only purchased Borini outright in June, paying nearly £4 million in order to acquire the remaining 50% of the player's economic rights from Parma.

"There is a real interest shown by Liverpool for Borini,'' Sabatini said. "We are evaluating the situation with (Roma general manager) Franco (Baldini)."

Sabatini also confirmed that Roma are giving serious thought to selling Borini, who scored nine times in 24 Serie A appearances last season to earn a place in Italy's Euro 2012 squad.

"It's an option that we have," Sabatini said. "We'll see how we work it."

Borini's agent Marco De Marchi insisted that it is now up to the player whether or not he moves to Liverpool.

De Marchi told Radio Radio: "Roma has informed us of Liverpool's interest in the boy. Now it's up to Fabio to have his say."

He added on IlSussidiario.net: "We were alerted by Roma of the existence of this deal. I cannot honestly tell you the details but, as Sabatini has already said, we're now seriously considering it. Would the player want to go to Liverpool? Honestly, I don't want to commit myself as there will be more news in the coming days. Wait for that."

Meanwhile, Liverpool confirmed on Tuesday that midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has signed a new "long-term" contract at Anfield.

The 20-year-old has found himself on the fringes of the first team at Anfield, making 37 appearances in all competitions since joining from Charlton in May 2010, but has put pen to paper on an improved deal.

"I am really happy. Last season I was itching to try and push for a new contract. Now it's happened and I am ready to kick on again now," Shelvey said. "I want to get into the first team and be in the starting XI on a permanent basis. That's going to be hard, but it's something I've got to work towards.

"It's lovely to know I am in the plans for the future. At the moment, it's just about getting things right each day and proving myself to the gaffer here. The gaffer and his way of playing will suit me down to the ground and hopefully I can be in his plans.

"I think he's great. With all the passing drills he's doing, he's encouraging us to play all the time which is nice for a football player. Instead of doing a lot of long-distance running and things like that in pre-season, everything has been with a ball, which is more enjoyable. Everyone is enjoying training and looking forward to coming in.

"I think going away (on loan) to Blackpool helped me a lot. It gave me some experience, I scored some goals and I came back a better player. Kenny (Dalglish) gave me a chance towards the latter stages of the season and I thought I showed what I can do."
