Liverpool announce Borini

Liverpool have announced the capture of Italian striker Fabio Borini on a long-term contract from Roma.

Borini, 21, becomes new manager Brendan Rodgers' first signing as a Liverpool manager, completing a busy summer for the striker, who was part of Italy's squad at Euro 2012.

The Italy international has been linked with Liverpool for some time and finally put pen to paper on Friday evening after the two sides agreed upon an undisclosed fee, rumoured to be around £8 million.

It feels really good - and to be back in England as well," Borini told the club's official website. "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. I've got the trust of the manager and the club, which for me is very nice and I'm proud to be here.

"Yes, every other week in a full stadium. It will be amazing. I know the fans are very warm and they're here for football.

"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."

Having played under Rodgers at both Chelsea and Swansea, Borini revealed he is looking forward to teaming up with his former boss once more.

"I used to play 4-3-3 with him and he is very good to play football for," Borini added. "It is great to play football for him because you can have fun and you can get results. I could see at Swansea the people loved him because the football was attractive. People like to see football (played) like this.

Last campaign, Borini scored 10 goals in 26 appearances for Roma and made is full international debut in a friendly against USA.
