With Gylfi Sigurdsson still deciding on his future, another former Swansea City player is reportedly drawing interest from their former coach Brendan Rodgers.
Fabio Borini, who just last year completed a complicated transfer to Roma, is now being targeted by Liverpool's new boss Rodgers. However, The Mirror reports that the 21-year old striker has no intention of leaving his home country.
I am a Roma player, the Italy international said. It's not my business that there is talk about whether I go there [Liverpool] or stay. It doesn't matter to me, I am Roma.
Rodgers and Borini have some deep-rooted history together, with Rodgers coaching him as a part of Chelsea's youth squad and again when he was loaned to Swansea City in 2011. The Sun reports that it will take £10 million to reunite the pair, but the familiar face may be worth it to Rodgers, who is trying to build up Liverpool in his image.
That is not the only striker that Liverpool is pursuing to add support to Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll. The Daily Star reports that Liverpool is competing with both Tottenham and Chelsea to sign Malaga's Salomon Rondon.
The Venezuelan forward's 11 goals helped Malaga qualify for the Champions League and that has put his price at a reported £20 million. The Daily Star also pegged three unnamed German sides as having interest in him and it will not be easy to acquire this powerful 22-year-old.
In another bidding war, Inter Milan's Luc Castaignos is allegedly being courted by Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton. Metro reports the price for the 19-year old Dutch forward at £4.5 million, but the option of a loan is also still on the table as Inter may not want to permanently surrender their young talent.
With competition for places up front at Anfield next season potentially tough, Castaignos may lean toward a loan move to Everton in the hope of getting more playing time. The former Feyenoord prospect made a single start in Serie A last season and is also said to be interesting Newcastle and West Ham.
