West Ham United are being linked with a move for former Sunderland winger Fabio Borini, as per a report by Football.London.

The Italian international left Sunderland following their relegation from the Premier League last year and joined AC Milan on loan, who then made the move permanent. He could be set for another move this summer after becoming available for transfer by AC Milan.

Borini is now a summer target for West Ham United. Their new manager, Manuel Pellegrini, is looking to bolster his newly inherited squad and put his own stamp on them. They have also been linked with a move for Fulham right-back Ryan Fredericks, who is out of contract next month.

Borini, who is 27 years-old, started his career in Italy with Bologna before moving to England in 2007 to join Chelsea. He played 8 games for Chelsea’s senior side before he was loaned out to Swansea City in the Championship in 2011, where he scored 6 goals in 12 games.

He then signed for Parma after his loan at Swansea City expired but was immediately loaned out to Roma. He scored 10 goals in 26 games in Serie A in the 2011/12 season which earned him a move to Liverpool for around £10.5 million.

Borini spent two seasons at Liverpool before moving to Sunderland. He was a kay player for the Black Cats but could not prevent them from relegation in 2017. He played 43 games for AC Milan on loan this season but looks set for another move over the coming months.
