Zeman won’t block Borini exit

Roma boss Zdenek Zeman has reportedly given his club the green light to sell Fabio Borini to Liverpool.

The capital club yesterday confirmed stories that the Premiership side were very interested in the Italian international.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Zeman has no objection to the sale of the player who was only signed outright from Parma last month.

Although Borini is a wide attacker who would seemingly be a good fit on paper for the 4-3-3 tactician, Zeman doesn’t see him as an irreplaceable figure within the squad.

Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini stated on Tuesday that the club are considering Liverpool’s offer for the Italian international.

It is believed that the Anfield outfit have made an initial bid of around €10m for the former Chelsea and Swansea youngster.

The Gazzetta says that Roma would definitely sell should that offer be raised to €14m. The capital club would then attempt to reinvest that figure for Siena striker Mattia Destro, who is co-owned with Genoa.
