Borini has Roma objective

Fabio Borini is focused on earning himself a permanent Roma contract once his loan deal from Parma expires in the summer.

The Italian Under-21 international moved to the Stadio Olimpico before the start of the season just a matter of months after joining the Tardini boys from Chelsea.

“Fabio is doing all that he can in order to convince Roma to take up their option to sign him,” agent Marco De Marchi told Voce Giallorossa.

“He wants to be important for the team and the fans – and we think he is on the right path to do that. Roma was the best solution for him and we had an offer from Liverpool too…”

Borini is now almost fully fit after missing the last few weeks of 2011 with a muscle problem.

His return to action will be needed after the club lost Pablo Daniel Osvaldo to injury and loaned Marco Borriello to Roma this week.

The 20-year-old has scored one goal in seven Serie A appearances so far this season – three of those came from the first minute.
