thumbnail Hello,

The 21-year-old is set to join the Merseyside club after working with Brendan Rodgers at Chelsea and Swansea, but should the Italian be a part of the starting XI straight away?

POLL

Liverpool are on the brink of signing striker Fabio Borini for a fee in the region of £11 million from Roma, but should he start up front for the Anfield club next season?

Borini has played under manager Brendan Rodgers before at Chelsea and Swansea, and is on Merseyside to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms before signing with the club.

The Italian will have to fight for a starting place at Liverpool but could be helped by the reports that both Craig Bellamy and Andy Carroll could leave the club on season-long loans.

Should Liverpool get rid of two of their strikers for the rest of the season to fit Borini into the squad, or is the fact he is unproven at Premier League standard mean they should just use him as a bit-part player?

Or is Rodgers going to favour a lone frontman in attack, in which case is Luis Suarez likely to be favoured?

HAVE YOUR SAY

Would Suarez and Borini be a perfect partnership up front? Or should Carroll and Bellamy get another chance despite their low goal tally last season? Let us know your opinion by voting in our poll and leaving a comment below, or getting in touch via Facebook and Twitter.
