Parma still seek Chelsea's Borini

Chelsea striker Fabio Borini “could resume talks for a move to Parma, but other clubs are interested,” said his agent.

The 19-year-old had been very close to completing his transfer to Serie A during the January window when negotiations with the Tardini side broke down.

“Fabio is in good shape, has recovered from his injury and is at the disposal of the manager,” agent Marco De Marchi told Itasportpress.

“His contract expires on June 30 and I know nothing about the potential for a renewal, as the Chelsea directors have not contacted me. It's only normal that if the lad is not required, we will seek an alternative solution.

“In January they didn't reach a definitive agreement with Parma, but the Tardini side showed they were very interested in the player.

“I won't rule out that in the summer we could resume talks for a move to Parma, starting from where we left off, but other clubs are interested.

“Borini is an appetising striker, as he has strong technique, physicality and character. There are many sides interested in him, from Italy and England to elsewhere.”
