Crystal Palace, Aston Villa eyeing €15m move for former Liverpool flop

Date published: Sunday 7th July 2019 6:58

Crystal Palace are leading the race to sign AC Milan striker Fabio Borini – although they face competition from Aston Villa.

Borini spent five years as a Premier League player between 2012 and 2017, although he never really hit the heights for either Liverpool or Sunderland.

However, after two years with Milan, the 28-year-old could be set to return to England, after he was deemed surplus to requirements.

The forward’s salary of €2.5m is deemed excessive for a fringe player who does not fit into the plans of new Rossoneri coach Marco Giampaolo, so they have put him on the market for €15m.

According to Calciomercato, Palace are ready to make an offer and Borini would be willing to accept the move.

However, newly promoted Aston Villa are set to rival them in the chase for the attacker, who scored 16 Premier League goals across his spells with Liverpool and Sunderland.
