Reports has it that Liverpool have offered Fabio Borini to Lazio in exchange for Nigeria midfielder Ogenyi Onazi. The Nigerian midfielder, Onazi is a January transfer target for the Anfield giants and they have made a bold step to get him with a swap deal plus £8 million.
‘The Reds’ who are looking to improve their midfield, has identified 22-year-old Onazi as the man to help them do well in the Premier League.
The Nigeria international is a key man for the Serie A club, but Liverpool are looking to take advantage of Lazio’s long-term interest in Borini by offering the former Chelsea and Roma forward plus £8million for Onazi’s services.
Borini has failed to impress this season alongside Liverpool’s other misfiring strikers, and Rodgers is ready to part ways with the Italian as he looks to engineer an early return for Lille loanee Divock Origi. Onazi, who has been linked to move to EPL sides Everton and Liverpool, only recently extended his contract at Lazio.
