Marco Borriello’s career could be revived by a move to the English Premier League, according to Sky Sport Italia.
The striker could be handed a reprieve by either West Ham or Fulham if he is willing to accept the first move abroad of his much-travelled career.
Borriello spent the second half of last season on loan with Juventus, but his failure to impact upon the eventual champions meant that they opted against a permanent deal. Upon his return to Roma, the 30-year-old found himself surplus to new Coach Zdenek Zeman’s requirements.
The two Premier League clubs would be interested to give Borriello a chance to prove himself, but only if he significantly reduces his wages.
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce was recently spotted at Juventus’ training ground and could have used that opportunity to ask about the player.
