Newcastle in for Borini?

Reports in Italy suggest Newcastle United have been scouting Milan forward Fabio Borini, and could make a move for him in January.

The 27-year-old joined the Rossoneri from Sunderland, Newcastle’s local rivals, in the summer of 2017 but he’s struggled for playing time this season.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, manager Rafa Benitez has sent his scouts to observe Borini in recent weeks.

The Magpies have so far not made an approach for the Italian international, but if an offer does arrive in January it’s thought Milan would be open to selling.
